Hoyas Picked to Finish 6th in Sports Illustrated Big East Preview

thompson center

Your Fighting Hoyas of Georgetown have been picked to finish 6th in the 2018-19 Sports Illustrated Big East preview. The Hoyas finished 8th last season with a conference record of 5-13.

You can find the article RIGHT HERE, relevant Georgetown blurb below:


The Skinny: The Hoyas most important returnee is Jessie Govan, who comes in at 6’10”, 270 pounds and averaged 17.9 points, 10.0 rebounds and 1.1 blocks as a junior last season. He’ll need to take that next step for Georgetown after losing forward Marcus Derrickson. This is a young team that will lean on Govan’s talent (he scored 30 points in a loss to Villanova late last season) and experience.

Scout’s Take: “Jessie Govan is as talented of a big guy as there is in the country. You just sometimes wonder if he knows that. He can score it on the low block, he can step out and make a shot, and they do a real nice job of getting the ball to him. He’s going to have to shoulder the load for those guys after losing Marcus Derrickson, who was probably the biggest mismatch in our league. I think that will be a lot for them to overcome. But Jessie Govan is more than capable of taking that next step and becoming that true dominant big man.”
