Hoyas Freshmen Get B- (Hoops, not the Girls)

New, 3 comments

According to an ESPN.com article that was published 3 months ago, our incoming freshman class merits a "B-" grade before any of them have even set foot on a court in NCAA action. I give the reporter a D for this article, just because I can.

For the record, while I was at Georgetown I averaged an A-/B+.

Grade

Georgetown Hoyas

Georgetown commits: three
The Hoyas faded down the stretch after getting off to an impressive start last season. They will likely lose leading scorer DaJuan Summers to the NBA, but they dodged a huge bullet when Greg Monroe decided to stay for another year. With Summers gone, Georgetown will look to 6-7 SF Hollis Thompson (Concord, Calif./De La Salle), who enrolled early to get a jump on the competition, to help replace that scoring punch. He has very good leaping ability and will have to continue to develop his body as well as his perimeter touch and consistency. Vee Sanford (Lexington, Ky./Lexington Catholic), a 6-3 SG, has the ability to connect on jumpers from deep as well as get to the hoop. PF Jerrelle Benimon (Warrenton, Va./Fauquier) has a tremendous amount of upside, which greatly complements his impressive athleticism and rebounding skills.

I have the 10th pick in a 12-man fantasy draft tonight.

Casually.
