All-Conference recognition for exemplary conduct on & off the court

NCAA Basketball: Georgetown at Marquette Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

This weekend, Jagan Mosely was honored during the Georgetown Hoyas’ Senior Day ceremony. He was profiled by outlets ranging from lunch blogs to the Washington Post. He took time out from a pressure-filled and emotional week to meet a fan. A four year-player who exemplified what it was like to be a leader, a teammate, and an all-around decent human being, Mosely is the type of student athlete any program is lucky to have on campus.

Now, he has been recognized with the BIG EAST Conference with a Sportsmanship Award, highlighting the exemplary conduct of players who are, “strong contributors to their respective teams on and off the court.”

That said...apparently the BIG EAST thinks he’s a Junior, so is their subtle way of giving him another year of eligibility? We won’t say anything.

Congratulations, Jagan. You deserve this and more.

Hoya Saxa.
