WASHINGTON - For Georgetown University senior men's basketball player Markel Starks (Accokeek, Md./Georgetown Prep), walking across a stage to receive his diploma was the culmination of a life-long dream.

A life-long resident of the area and a fan of the Hoyas growing up, Starks said many times during his playing career on the Hilltop that it had always been his dream to come to school here. After playing for four seasons, leading the team to a BIG EAST Regular Season title, to the postseason four times and becoming one of the top-30 scorers in program history, Starks walked across the stage at Healy Lawn on Saturday morning, completing his degree in English.

Starks was one of eight members of the Hoyas to graduate on Saturday, joined by senior center Moses Ayegba (Kano, Nigeria/Progressive Christian [Md.]), guard John Caprio (North Caldwell, N.J./Seton Hall Prep) and forward Nate Lubick (Southborough, Mass./St. Marks). The players were joined by senior managers Edwin Bradley III, Chance Harvey and Tommy Pettriccione.

That group was among a group of more than 1,700 students to participate in graduation ceremonies from Georgetown over the weekend.

"It meant a whole lot to me, and it meant a whole lot more to my parents," Lubick said. "It's one of the best schools in the country and, as I said at the banquet, it was a dream come true for me."

Lubick, who will begin working in New York City at Blackstone, a premier global investment and advisory firm, was one of two Hoyas to graduate from the McDonough School of Business, joined by Caprio. Lubick earned his degree in management.

"Between the combination of what Georgetown has to offer, the access we have to alumni and being able to go to school in the `most powerful city in the world,' it's a decision I'll never regret," Lubick said. "There's no better place to go in the country."
