With no seniors on last year’s roster, your 2013-14 Georgetown Hoyas will look very similar to the team that won a share of the Big East Regular Season title and bowed out in the first round of the NCAA Tournament (again).
There one was just one high profile departure from the team: superstar Otto Porter Jr., who leapt to the NBA, a move that could best be described as inspired by the “Matt Barkley Cautionary Tale School of Staying in School for Too Long.” All the best to last year’s Big East Player of the Year, a virtual lock for the top-5 in this week’s NBA draft.
Quietly, though, more room has cleared for new faces to round out the Hoyas’ roster this year. Brandon Bolden, the mysterious dreadlocked center, has vanished into the night to Kansas State after recording just one field goal in four games his freshman year.
Tyler Adams, too, is most likely gone, with all indications that a heart condition has forced him into a pseudo-retirement. The Mississippi native only played four games in his career, but was a heralded prospect coming out of high school and would have provided much needed beef on a thin Hoyas frontline.
So who will be replacing these now ex-members of the Blue and Gray this year? Here is the first of a two-part preview on what to expect from the two newest Hoyas.
