Georgetown University’s men’s basketball team obtained a name, image and likeness (NIL) partnership with Georgetown-area fast-casual restaurant DIG Nov. 10. As part of the deal, the men’s basketball team will promote DIG, a farm-sourced, fast-casual restaurant with a location on Wisconsin Ave. that opened in April, on social media, in exchange for compensation, capitalizing on the athletes’ value to grow their business. The partnership is one of a growing number of deals made since the National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA) first allowed collegiate athletes to profit off their NIL in July 2021. Megan Zilenziger, a marketing specialist in partnerships and activations for DIG, said DIG is excited to partner with the basketball team. "We are thrilled to collaborate with Georgetown’s MBB team this season. Specializing in seasonal comfort food that’s both satisfying and nourishing, we believe this partnership is a great fit. The DIG team is eager to see how they do this season!" Zilenziger wrote to The Hoya. Hoyas Rising, an independent organization launched in May 2023 that aims to assist Georgetown student-athletes in capitalizing on their NIL and personal brand, helped to facilitate the deal. NFR
Georgetown senior forward Ismael Massoud encountered an unfortunate setback during the Hoyas' closed scrimmage against Pittsburgh on Saturday. Sources have revealed that Massoud sustained a broken hand in the game and is expected to be sidelined for approximately 6-8 weeks, according to reports from FOX Sports. Standing at an imposing 6 feet 9 inches, Massoud transferred from Kansas State to Georgetown for his fifth and final season of college basketball. Last season, he played a crucial role in a reserve capacity for the Kansas State Wildcats, contributing significantly to their Elite Eight run. Notably, he delivered an impressive 15 points off the bench in Kansas State's Sweet 16 victory over Michigan State. National Finals Rodeo

Fortunately, the Georgetown Hoyas (1-0) managed to secure a narrow 3-2 victory against the Santa Clara Broncos (0-1) in the opening game of the season for both teams. Despite their preseason all-Big East selections and a strong offensive display, the visiting Hoyas raised concerns about maintaining their past consistency. During the initial twenty minutes, the outcome appeared evident. Seizing an opportunity from a poorly executed first pass, sophomore midfielder Max Viera skillfully positioned the ball in front of Santa Clara's defensive line. Senior midfielder Kyle Linhares, situated between two defenders, outpaced his opponents and skillfully maneuvered the ball past Broncos' goalkeeper Felix Schaefer, marking the quickest goal in the school's history a mere 13 seconds into the match.
