Kenneth Denlinger (1942-2015)


From the Washington Post, news of the passing of veteran reporter Ken Denlinger, who covered the Georgetown Hoyas for more than a decade in the 1990's and early 2000's. Denlinger, 73, worked for the Post for 38 years.

A New Look


On this, our 19th anniversary (the site launched Oct. 1, 1996), we're launching a new design for the first time since 2000.

Why? Time (and the Internet) has changed. Where desktop computers once ruled the Net, more people are coming to the site vis phone and tablet than PC, and the old design wasn't suited to smaller screens. In addition, Google has instituted some changes to its search engine that will affect how sites that do not maintain a responsive Web design are viewed in the search engine.

The new design can be viewed more easily on all sorts of devices.

As we approach the season, interior pages will be converted as well, and the next big hurdle (and it's big) will be the conversion of the basketball history site. In the meantime, welcome back.

Schedule Previews


From Fansided, a look a the non-conference and conference schedules for the 2015-16 Hoyas, and how writer Paolo Santamaria sees the Hoyas faring in each.

"Though it remains to be seen just how well the team will mesh at the start of the season, I'm confident Georgetown will have all cylinders firing when the Big East season rolls around," he said.

Mutombo Joins Basketball Hall Of Fame


Welcomed by former coach John Thompson and supported by many former players and alumni in attendance, Dikembe Mutombo (I'91, H'10) became the sixth member of the Georgetown basketball family elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame in ceremonies held Friday in Springfield, MA.

"It means a lot to me, to the generation that's coming after me, to the continent of Africa in particular, " Mutombo told Sports Illustrated. To see a son of Congo who came to America with nothing today, sitting on one of the highest platforms in the game of means a lot. Really. It's good for my children, my wife, I just wish that my mom and dad were still alive to have seen this. I know they're watching us."

For an international sports such as the NBA, Mutombo was only the third African ever on an NBA roster when he was drafted in 1991, and took note to thank coach Thompson for his development on and off the court.

"Coach has always been a father figure to me," Mutombo said. "There’s not too many things in my life that I have done without having a conversation about it with him...He’s always been there for me."

Mutombo's speech during the ceremonies is found below:
