As the 2022-23 college basketball season blissfully comes to an end for the Georgetown Hoyas, one thing is abundantly clear: the Hoyas are bad. They will have made the NCAA Tournament just once over the last eight years (thanks to an improbable Covid miracle run during the 2020-21 Big East Tournament). Since 2015, Georgetown has had a winning overall record EXACTLY ONCE and has failed to produce a winning conference record during this entire stretch.
So, how did we get here?
First, a walk down memory lane with JTIII….
Coach John Thompson III’s struggles in his final two years at the helm have been well-documented: during the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons, his teams finished with a combined record 19-36 overall and 12-24 in conference.
