Georgetown's Hollis Thompson to Enter Name for NBA Draft

March 27, 2012

WASHINGTON - Georgetown University Head Men's Basketball Coach John Thompson III announced today that junior forward Hollis Thompson (Los Angeles, Calif./Loyola) will forgo his final year of eligibility and submit his name for the National Basketball Association (NBA) Draft. Thompson plans to sign with an agent.

"Hollis returned for his junior year after submitting his name for the 2011 NBA Draft," John Thompson III said. "We fully anticipated he would enter the 2012 draft after this season. He is an extremely hard worker and we wish him the best as he takes his next step."

Thompson finished the season second on the team in scoring with 12.8 points per game and third on the team with 5.5 rebounds per game. He hit a team-high 58 three-point field goals and led the BIG EAST in three-point field goal percentage, connecting on 43.0 percent of his shots. Thompson was an All-BIG EAST honorable mention selection this season.

In 99 career games on the Hilltop, Thompson averaged 8.7 points and 4.1 rebounds while shooting 47.8 percent from the floor. The 6-8.5 sharp-shooter is the school's all-time leader in three-point field goal percentage, connecting on 44.0 percent of his shots (128-of-291). His 128 three-pointers ranks 12th all-time at GU.

Georgetown finished the 2011-12 season with a 24-9 overall record and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the sixth time in eight years under Thompson. The Hoyas, who were picked to finish 10th in the BIG EAST, posted a 12-6 record in league play and were among the top five teams in the league.
