UPDATE: The ProCamps stream was well done and very fun. Be sure to check it out. My apologies for having doubted its existence! It was great to see some younger fans involved and provide questions. The team seems very optimistic and has some very, very lofty goals for themselves.
ProCamps has scheduled a “Virtual Meet n’ Greet in Georgetown” today at 4PM ET featuring Akok Akok, Jay Heath, Brandon Murray, Bradley Ezewiro, Bryson Mozone, and Primo Spears. This sounds like a great introduction these transfers, but no other info outside some IG stories appears available.
ProCamps and G3 Marketing were the driving forces behind the prior two big NIL events—the November 2021 bowling event and the June 2022 in-person meet-and-greet at The Admiral. ProCamps was contacted and no response was given. This NIL event appears to be virtual, if it’s happening... we’ll see at 4PM ET.
Here are the links:
A 21-game losing streak and winless record in Big East play raised questions about Patrick Ewing’s job security. He answered with major reinforcements. Transfers Brandon Murray (LSU), Qudus Wahab (Maryland), Jay Heath (Arizona State), and Akok Akok (UConn) all arrive at Georgetown as potential starters who were consensus Top-100 recruits a few years ago. The Hoyas are currently awaiting a waiver on Heath’s eligibility for the 2022-23 season. Duquesne transfer Primo Spears is also expected to have a major impact at point guard, where the Hoyas already have junior Dante Harris (11.9 points, 4.1 assists, 3.6 rebounds), who was the Big East Tournament MVP in 2021. It may not be realistic for Georgetown to triple its win total after a six-win season, but Ewing has enough talent on his roster to flirt with a .500 overall record and the middle of the conference standings.
8. Marquette: Outperformed expectations in year one under Shaka Smart, but lost quite a bit of proven talent.
9. Butler: Expectations are modest with major roster turnover, limited experience and a new head coach (albeit a proven winner in Thad Matta).
10. DePaul: Scrapped its way out of the basement last season. Baby steps, but steps nonetheless.
11. Georgetown: Massive retention problems have laid this proud program low. Can Patrick Ewing save face?

No. 5, December 10 vs. Georgetown ... I have no idea whether the Hoyas will be improved in 2022-23, as they were awful last season but still managed to beat the Orange by a couple of points in Washington, D.C.
Normally, I’d put Georgetown coming to the Dome at No. 1 or No. 2 on my list here, but with the Hoyas not a great program these days, and the ‘Cuse being under .500 a term ago, I’m going with No. 5.

This game has now be relegated to the deuce in 2022.
There were rumblings around the team last spring that Freemantle and head coach Travis Steele had reached the end of their ability to coexist before the season had run down, but ultimately Steele’s departure settled that issue. Freemantle had the opportunity to seek minutes elsewhere - doubtless he would have been in high demand - but instead decided to stay put and play under Sean Miller...
It has seemed that [Freemantle] is prone from going from on point to on tilt [both] on and seemingly off the court, and that affects his ability to make a positive impact on the game. Coach Miller is clearly trying to rein that in. Time will tell if it works.
