WASHINGTON - Georgetown University Head Men's Basketball Coach John Thompson III was selected as the District 5 Coach of the Year by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC).
It was the second-straight day a member of the Hoyas program had been honored by the NABC, as sophomore men's basketball player Otto Porter Jr. (Morley, Mo./Scott County Central) was named a First Team All-American by the organization.
Thompson, who is one of four finalists for the Naismith National Coach of the Year Award, was also named the CBSSports.com National Coach of the Year and was also recognized as the BIG EAST Coach of the Year earlier this month.
The 2012-13 season marked the first time that Thompson III has won BIG EAST Coach of the Year honors but it is the fourth time a Georgetown coach has claimed the honor as his father, John Thompson Jr., did so in 1979-80, 1986-87 and 1991-92.
Under Thompson III this season, the Hoyas rebounded from an 0-2 start in BIG EAST play to win 11-straight games and closed out the year with 14 wins in 16 games to win the regular season title with a 14-4 record. It was the third regular season championship in nine seasons under Thompson III, who has led the Hoyas to at least 10 conference wins in seven of the last nine seasons.
Georgetown was ranked No. 8 in the final regular season Associated Press poll and when the team moved into the top 10 in February, the Hoyas became only one of four schools in the country to be ranked in the Associated Press top 10 at least once in each of the last seven seasons. Georgetown is also ranked fifth nationally in Associated Press top 25 poll appearances (116) since January 2006.
The Hoyas finished the season with a 25-7 overall record and were a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
