Calling shots, not blocking them, Ewing leads Hoyas to NCAAs

Patrick Ewing and Georgetown are back in the NCAA Tournament. The 7-footer who helped the Hoyas win one national championship and reach two other finals in the 1980s is now coaching at his alma mater. Georgetown is a No. 12 seed and will play No. 5 Colorado in the East Region on Saturday. This is Ewing’s fourth season and he is embracing carrying on the legacy of his coach at Georgetown, John Thompson. Ewing’s team entered last week’s Big East Tournament with a losing record but won the title to earn a trip to the NCAAs for the first time since 2015.
