A pleasant surprise for Hoyas fans on Monday was the announcement that graduate transfer Chudier Bile is coming to the Georgetown Hoyas. After searching high and low all spring, Patrick Ewing added a new 6’7” 200-pound forward.
Highlights of Newest Hoya Chudier Bile:https://t.co/PEbqJGVF4z— Casual Hoya (@CasualHoya) April 27, 2020
The 21-year-old is coming by way of the Northwestern State Demons. Bile impressed in the Southland Conference last season, leading his team in points per game (14.3), rebounds (7.6), and blocks (1.5), and being named to the second team all-conference team by the coaches.
Bile made about about 4.6 of 9.7 field goal attempts each game, including making about 1.3 of 3.3 three-point attempts. Chudier Bile got to the free-throw line better than anyone on his Demon team, and hits about 73% of them. He did turn the ball over almost 4 times per game (in 24 mpg), with a couple games with 5+ giveaways (below), while playing what appears to have been an uptempo offense. Bile has professional aspirations and previously studied business. Ewing has his work cut out for him with adding 6 new guys during the modern work-from-home era.
Prior to a year-in-residency at Northwestern State, Bile had played at Otero JC and Denver South High School in Colorado. The transfer sit-out was due to originally transferring to Bradley for a summer before leaving for NSU in 2018.
In addition to the Denver area, it sounds like Bile also called Sudan his home. Announcers have pronounced his first name “Choo-dee-ay” and his last name as simply “Bile.”

2019-20 Season (Redshirt Junior): Second-Team All-Southland Conference member who started 23 games and appeared in 28 … led team with 14.3 points and 7.6 rebounds with 41 blocks … shot 48 percent from the field and warmed up to nearly 38 percent from 3-point range … his 104 made free throws is nearly double anyone else on the team … in SLC Tournament win vs. TAMU-CC, tied for team highs with 17 points and six rebounds – scored 11 straight points as part of a 26-1 run to overrun the Islanders … seven double-doubles, including five in SLC play …
double doubles vs. Rice (10 and 12), Louisiana College (21 and 10), UIW (22 and 12), McNeese (15 and 13), Nicholls (10 and 10), Abilene Christian (15 and 10) and Central Arkansas (17 and 15) … UIW, McNeese and Nicholls double-doubles were consecutive … career-high 27 points vs. McNeese on 10-18 shooting to highlight six games of at least 20 points … contributed 26 points and nine rebounds vs. SFA … 22 double-figure games … made a buzzer-beating 3-pointer at Nicholls to knock off the then-SLC leading Colonels … his 1.46 blocks per game ranked fourth in the SLC and 96th nationally … 13 multi-block games, including five vs. Louisiana College and three vs. Centenary and Abilene Christian.
He was a junior college recruit from Otero CC near Denver, where he was a key player on a very good juco team. He averaged 12.4 ppg and 5.9 rpg his sophomore season at Otero CC. He committed on April 17, 2018, and joined the Bradley team for the summer. But on July 9, 2018, after the first summer session, he decided to leave Bradley and transfer elsewhere...
He transferred to Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana, a member of the Southland Conference, and sat out the 2018-19 season.
The 6-foot-7 Otero Junior College (Colo.) transfer, who signed with the Braves in the spring, has been granted his request to be released from his scholarship, according to a BU news release Monday. A source close to the men’s basketball program said Bile’s decision to leave was based on the demands of the program being beyond his expectations. The source also said that Bile also determined that his playing time wasn’t going to be sufficient. Bile worked out with the Braves for the first summer session, which ended Friday.

Junior Chudier Bile, a second-team all-conference selection with 14 points and nearly eight rebounds per game, posted a career-high 15 rebounds Saturday at UCA as part of his seventh double-double this season.
“His 17 points and 15 rebounds, you just think wow,” McConathy said. “(Bile) rebounded with a vengeance, and if we’re going to win, everybody is going to have to rebound with a vengeance against a really good rebounding team in (TAMU-CC).” The Demons finished the regular season in a tie for fourth place with Sam Houston State, the fifth time McConathy has finished in the top four since 2010.
So Georgetown's lineup for next year looks like Harris/McClung/Mosely/Pickett/Wahab with grad transfer Chudier Bile and a bunch of freshmen off the bench. That scares me in year four for Patrick Ewing-- this freshmen class really needs to hit and Wahab has to turn into a star.— Kevin Sweeney (@CBB_Central) April 28, 2020
The junior forward also drew interest from Arkansas, Georgia Southern, Portland, Cal State Northridge, George, and DePaul, according to Stadium’s Jeff Goodman. He averaged 14.3 points, 7.6 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks in 28 games for the Demons this past season.

Chudier Bile scored a career-high 22 points plus 12 rebounds as Northwestern State snapped its seven-game road losing streak, beating Incarnate Word 72-66 on Wednesday night. Bile hit 12 of 15 from the free throw line and 5-for-8 from the floor.
Northwestern State forward Chudier Bile continued to pile up postseason honors as voters for the Louisiana Sports Writer’s Association selected the junior for the All-Louisiana Third Team, the organization announced Tuesday. Bile is considered one of the top 15 players in the state as each team consisted of five players from the state’s Division I, Division III, NAIA and junior college ranks...
The teams were selected by Louisiana’s sports information directors and media members. “He’s one of the toughest matchups in the Southland Conference because he can make shots on the interior and from long range, and he can be remarkable on the boards,” said NSU coach Mike McConathy.

Northwestern State forward Chudier Bile was selected to the All-Southland Conference Second Team, the league announced Monday. The redshirt junior has spearheaded the newcomer wave at NSU, leading the team with 14 points, nearly eight rebounds per game and blocked 40 shots. The teams were selected by conference coaches.
“Think about (Bile’s) game at Central Arkansas – 17 points and 15 rebounds – wow, remarkable,” said NSU coach Mike McConathy. “He shoots around 81 percent from the free-throw line in conference play, and he made 9-10 on Saturday.
This Georgetown roster looks somewhat underwhelming ... and it’s now Year 4 of the Ewing Era.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanHoops) April 28, 2020
Still searching for an NCAA tourney bid ... and Georgetown is a pretty damn good job last time I checked.
