When a tall and talented freshman from Homestead, PA arrived on the Hilltop in 1981, Georgetown
women's basketball was changing and growing fast. Adapting and persevering,
Alyson Westbrooks led her teammates through the transition to
new coaches and Big East conference play.
Alyson was the dominant inside player for the Hoyas during her career. She led the team in scoring
as a sophomore and led the team in rebounding in each of her final three seasons.
She was twice named the team's most valuable player.
Alyson finished her career tied for first at Georgetown in career field goal shooting percentage,
second in career rebounding, third in career blocked shots, fourth in career scoring, and
fifth in career free throw percentage. Team captain in her final season, Alyson and
her teammates ended the season as the highest scoring team in Georgetown history.
In recognition of her numerous achievements and her outstanding
contribution to Georgetown basketball, the name of
Alyson R. Westbrooks, C'85
is permanently inscribed in the Georgetown University Athletic Hall of Fame
among the names of the greatest athletes in the history of the University.
Given this day, the second of February, in the year of 2002.
