Georgetown Basketball: Athletic Hall of Fame

Thirty five players and four coaches from the sport of men's basketball have been elected to the Georgetown Athletic Hall of Fame since its founding in 1953. By rule, entrants must have played on a varsity sport for at least one season and have graduated.
