    Well, that was unexpected. It’s a HUUGE blow to that team as well.

    I'm guessing this is "disciplinary reasons that we can't disclose due to student privacy rights."

    This is the end of the Patrick Ewing era.

    Here's a rumor from the G'town board:

    Mods can delete this at their discretion.

    Rumor is that both players are on a “list” going around campus released by the Black Students Association of students accused of sexual harassment/assault.

    Holy Crap. Well, that's a killer. Must be a pretty clear team/school violation for that to happen. Then again Dez got railroaded.

    I would hope that the rumor isn't true for the obvious reason of not ever wanting sexual assault to happen, and for a second obvious reason that no official student organization should arbitrarily create and circulate a list like that. If there is an actual reasonable suspicion of that, then I'd hope they wouldn't still be in classes and really don't think that they would be. Since there is no report of them being booted from classes, I'm kind of leaning toward the rumors being just that.

    It could be that they stormed out over something ridiculous and Ewing told them not to let the door hit them.

    It could be another school tampered, Ewing found out about it, and his way of dealing with it was to just tell them to GTF out.

    It could be a thousand different reasons. Including what's being rumored. But hopefully not.

    That announcement doesn't say he "leaves Georgetown."
    It says they can't play this season.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    These allegations do not sound good. https://sports.yahoo.com/amphtml/res...021348927.html

    Their names have been added to the transfer portal. They are gone from GT.

    I read that he was a big time recruit that transferred to Georgetown. So far this year he isn't playing much nor contributing much.

    Dez came to mind immediately, but apparently they've known about this for awhile, so I'd hope they've already done due diligence.
