John Thompson IIII

Dec. 17, 2012

WASHINGTON - Georgetown University Head Men's Basketball Coach John Thompson III was named today to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Division I Congress.

Founded in 1972, by legendary Kansas basketball coach Phog Allen, the NABC works to further the best interests of the game of basketball as well as the players and coaches who participate in the sport.

This is the first time in his collegiate coaching career that Thompson has served on the NABC board.

In eight-plus seasons as the head coach at Georgetown, Thompson has made his mark in the elite circles of college basketball. The Hoyas are one of only four schools nationally to have been ranked in the Associated Press Top 10 at least once in each of the last six seasons.

Since his arrival on the Hilltop, the Hoyas have reached the postseason eight times, including six NCAA Tournament appearances. In 2006-07, Thompson led the Hoyas to a 30-7 record as the team won the BIG EAST Tournament Championship, the NCAA East Regional and advanced to the Final Four.

Thompson is the only coach in Georgetown history to lead the Hoyas to back-to-back BIG EAST Regular Season Championships, as the team won in 2006-07 and 2007-08, respectively.

Georgetown won its sixth-straight game and improved to 9-1 overall with an 81-68 decision over Western Carolina this past Saturday at Verizon Center. GU is ranked No. 15 in the latest Associated Press Top 25 poll, the third-straight week the team has been ranked in that spot.

The Hoyas play their final non-league game of the season on Saturday, Dec. 22, hosting American at Verizon Center. Tipoff at Georgetown's downtown home is slated for noon. The game will be shown live on MASN, with Jason Knapp and Mark Tillmon calling all of the action, and it can be heard locally on ESPN 980 AM.
