As we await the release of a new episode of Kente Korner, here are some links to videos and news:
The Georgetown Hoyas were just a little too much for the under-sized Bahamas men’s national basketball team to handle. And it wasn’t any easier for the New Providence Basketball Association Select team as they got clobbered 135-60 by Memphis State Tigers...
“They were physical, they were long, they can shoot. It’s difficult to lock into one thing that you can take away from them,” said DeMarco, an assistant coach from the former NBA champions Golden State Warriors who has taken over from Mario Bowleg, now the BBF president.
“They can play so many ways. But I was proud of us fighting back. We were down early in the first half, but we cut it down to about 14 at the half, but we just couldn’t get the offence to keep it close.” ...
“I think the best is yet to come. We’re still working, we’re still trying to become the team that I think we can be,” Ewing said. “We have a lot of talent on this team. We can play a lot of different ways, so we’re just going to continue working.”
Trey Mourning is a new player of Runa Basket, the Russian team announced.
The former Georgetown big man played 4 games with the Sacramento Kings at the Las Vegas Summer League.

Hall of Fame Georgetown Head Coach John Thompson speaks on how he recruited players to Georgetown. pic.twitter.com/93HFvQghSK— BBCA (@blkbballcoaches) August 18, 2019
Former All-American Kenny Walker was this year’s guest speaker and obviously had a lot of terrific memories and stories to share (and I will have more of them for you in the future). But just know that they Final Four loss to Georgetown still haunts him like it does most Kentucky fans...
“I had an amazing career at Kentucky but some of the losses are what I remember most because of how they hurt and none hurt more than Georgetown. Patrick Ewing was on that Georgetown team and a few years later was my teammate with the New York Knicks. He never let me live that down.
“I told him that was just a weird night and it would never happen again. He liked to think their defense intimidate us but that was not it. We just could not make a shot.”

His strong play led to a bump in the pre-July 2021 rankings. He current sits at No. 6 in the 247Sports Composite Rankings, but No. 4 in the Top247. It also led to a collection of 28 scholarship offers...
Which schools have prioritized him?
“There’s a pretty good amount,” Holmgren said. “Minnesota, Gonzaga, Texas, Baylor, Purdue, Georgetown, Coach [Patrick] Ewing texts me a lot and we talk back and forth a lot. Cal, there’s a couple more I can’t remember off the top of my head.”
At the beginning of the summer Holmgren took unofficial visits to Georgetown, Maryland and Virginia. He’s looking to set up some more trips for the fall.
