The Georgetown University men's basketball team represents Georgetown University in NCAA Division I and the Big East Conference. The team, like all athletic programs at the school, are known as the Georgetown Hoyas. Georgetown has been competing in men's basketball since 1907.
The current head coach of the Hoyas is Patrick Ewing. Prior to assuming his current role at Georgetown, Ewing was an assistant coach in the NBA for thirteen seasons. As a player, he led the Hoyas to three Final Fours, two National Runner-Ups, and one National Championship in his four years at the school.
The Hoyas historically have been well regarded not only for their team success, but also for generating players that have succeeded both on the court, such as Patrick Ewing, Dikembe Mutombo, Alonzo Mourning, Allen Iverson, and off the court, such as Congressman Henry Hyde, former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue, and General James L. Jones.
The team won the National Championship in 1984 and has reached the NCAA Tournament Final Four on five occasions. Their most recent trip to the Final Four was in 2007.
