Clark Selected to National Jesuit Men's Basketball Team

April 17, 2012

WASHINGTON - Georgetown University senior men's basketball player Jason Clark (Arlington, Va./Bishop O'Connell) was selected to the 2011-12 National All-Jesuit Men's Basketball Team.

The All-Jesuit Team represents student-athletes from the 28 Jesuit colleges spread across the United States that play basketball on all three levels of the NCAA and also in the NAIA. They share the mission of Jesuit education, founded nearly 500 years ago under the principles of St. Ignatius Loyola to educate young people to become men and women dedicated to service and compassionate leadership. Students at Jesuit colleges have long excelled in the classroom and in the community, but they have also played a major role in collegiate basketball in the last 100 years.

Clark helped to lead Georgetown to a 24-9 overall record, its third-straight NCAA Tournament and a tie for fourth place in the BIG EAST Conference. The Hoyas have reached the NCAA Tournament in six of the last eight years and played in the postseason every season under Head Coach John Thompson III, including two NIT appearances. Georgetown, picked to finish in 10th place in the BIG EAST, posted a 12-6 league record on the way to earning a No. 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament's Midwest Regional.

An All-BIG EAST First Team selection this season, Clark was also the recipient of the BIG EAST Sportsmanship Award, voted on by the league's coaches, and was selected to the All-District 2 Second Team by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC).

Clark led the team, and ranked 17th in the BIG EAST, in scoring with 14.0 points per game, was third in field goal percentage (47.6%), second in three-point field goals made (48) and second in free throw percentage (75.0%). He was fourth on the team with 4.1 rebounds per game, led the team with 1.6 steals (which ranked eighth in the BIG EAST) and was third on the team with 1.8 assists per game.

 

 

In 130 career games, Clark scored 1,363 points - a 10.5 per game average. He ranks 20th all-time in scoring on the Hilltop and passed former Hoya All-American Jeff Green (2004-07) when he scored 21 points against Belmont in the second round of the NCAA Tournament last Friday.

Clark's 183 three-point field goals rank fourth all-time at Georgetown and he ranks third all-time in three-point field goals attempted (504) and 17th all-time in three-point percentage (36.3%).

The 6-2 guard also ranks tied for 14th all-time with 170 steals (with Brandon Bowman, 2002-06) and tied for 14th all-time with 130 games played (Eric Floyd, 1979-82). His 99 career starts are the 22nd-most in program history while his 3,760 minutes played - 28.9 minutes per game - rank 11th all-time.
