I’m gonna be honest. I don’t have anything else to add to the extravaganza of BIG EAST Media Day, I just wanted to share the awesome banner image of newly announced Captain Don Carey and sophomore point guard and leader Dante Harris. Below you’ll find some quotes, clips, and photos of Patrick Ewing, Carey, and Harris about the Georgetown Hoyas.
So, here are some great tweets from today! Great work by everyone covering the day!
Ewing on the preseason polls: "I remember talking to coach Thompson and he said don't worry about the preseason poll, they mean nothing. It is what happens at the end of the year that matters."— Thompson’s Towel (@ThompsonsTowel) October 19, 2021
Once again the team has the blinders on.#BEMediaDay

James Akinjo won the most recent award for the Hoyas in 2019.
Ewing won the award himself in 1982.
Just asked Shaka Smart about being in the BIG EAST. He said it was special to be in the conference with Patrick Ewing. #BEMediaDay— Patrick Waring (@WaringPatrick) October 19, 2021

.@PhillyHoyas gets a big laugh out of Ewing when he asks how MSG security treated Ewing this time around: "They treated me great!" #BEMediaDay— Hilltop Hoops (@HilltopHoops_) October 19, 2021
dont think it made it into this video but later I asked ewing about his business experience and NIL and he said he was learning about it with the athletes...it seems like he views it as an industry rather separate from the pro endorsement space— Amanda Christovich (@achristovichh) October 19, 2021

What seems clear is that the Big East coaches didn't put much stock into Georgetown building momentum from cutting down the nets in March.— Bobby Bancroft (@BobbyBancroft) October 19, 2021
MOP Dante Harris surely should have been Honorable Mention.
