Ewing’s exit? Hapless Hoyas blown out of Big East Tournament

NEW YORK (AP) — Georgetown and coach Patrick Ewing were blown out in the first round of the Big East Tournament amid speculation that the former Hoya great’s tenure as coach will soon come to an end. Ewing’s Hoyas lost to Villanova 80-48 at Madison Square Garden, the site of his greatest achievements as an NBA player and Georgetown coach. Ewing, who led the Hoyas to a surprising Big East Tournament championship in 2021, fell to 75-109 in six seasons as Georgetown coach. The school has made no official decision on Ewing’s future, but the Hoyas have won a combined 13 games the last two seasons.
