Rankings from AP Poll

The 2016–17 Georgetown Hoyas men's basketball team represented Georgetown University in the 2016–17 NCAA Division I men's basketball season. The Hoyas, led by 13th-year head coach John Thompson III, played their home games at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C., and were members of the Big East Conference.

The season saw the return of Jonathan Wallace, the Hoyas′ standout point guard from 2004 to 2008, to the basketball program as a special assistant after eight seasons playing professional basketball in the NBA Summer League, the National Basketball Association Developmental League, Belgium, Germany, and Angola.[1]

The Hoyas finished the season at 14–18, 5–13 in Big East play, to finish in ninth place in the conference, as the No. 9 seed in the Big East Tournament, they lost in the first round to St. John's. Georgetown finished the season with a losing record for the second straight year, the first time that had happened since the 1972 and 1973 seasons, and without an invitation to a postseason tournament in consecutive years since 1972 and 1973.

On March 23, 2017, Georgetown officials announced that John Thompson III had been fired.[2][3][4] On April 2, it was reported that Basketball Hall of Famer and Georgetown alum Patrick Ewing would replace Thompson as head coach.[5]

Previous season[edit]

The Hoyas finished the 2015–16 season 15–18, 7–11 in Big East play to finish in eighth place. They defeated DePaul in the first round of the Big East Tournament to advance to the quarterfinals where they lost to Villanova, for the first time in John Thompson III's twelve years as head coach, the Hoyas did not make a postseason tournament.

Preseason[edit]

Prior to the season, Georgetown was picked to finish in a tie for fourth place in a poll of Big East coaches.[6] Isaac Copeland was named to the preseason All-Big East second team and L. J. Peak received an Honorable Mention.[6]
