"New memories will be born and new heroes will come along. But creating a connection with our illustrious past will ensure that none of this history is forgotten."--The HOYA


 
 

In 1907, the foundation was set for the development of intercollegiate basketball at Georgetown University. Now, over a century later, this web site serves as an online archive of these accomplishments. From scores and stats to fantastic finishes and heartbreaking defeats, each of these moments form a legacy that is part of every Hoya team: for now, and for those to follow.

Source material comes from a variety of independent research efforts, media guides, game programs, numerous Google image searches, and cross-references with contemporary news accounts. Changes can and will be made when identified, so if you see additions or corrections, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Who We Are

Behind the web site

This site was begun in 2003 as a means of compiling an accurate historical and statistical record of the men's basketball program in advance of the 100th anniversary of the program during the 2006-07 season. It continues as an online archive of these statistics with additional feature content meant to further illustrate the history students have built over the years. This is their story.

What We Do

Current research topics in the project:

  • Dates and locations for all games played by GU since it began basketball;
  • A complete list of over 500 men who have played on the varsity
  • Bios of all former players, head coaches, and Hall of Fame recipients
  • Details on the freshman/reserve teams prior to 1981
  • Extended research into the history of the Big East conference
