Georgetown Hoyas (15-17)


Ewing hopes to carry on Thompson's legacy at Georgetown

WASHINGTON (AP) Georgetown coach Patrick Ewing said Friday he will try to carry on the legacy of his former coach and lifelong mentor John Thompson, who died Sunday at age 78.

Ewing, who won the 1984 national championship at Georgetown as a player under Thompson, returned to the school as coach in 2017 after a Hall of Fame NBA career.

He understands that he is now the school's strongest link to Thompson, who took over a lowly Hoyas program and turned it into a national powerhouse.
