Georgetown University Men’s Basketball Team last night before their game with Kansas. Georgetown was the first collegiate team to take a stand. Proud to be a Hoya. This is add to Georgetown Basketball’s legacy. After the game, when a reporter asked John Thompson III to connect the protest to his father John Thompson II’s legacy of outspoken beliefs — in 1989, Thompson II walked out before a game in protest of Proposition 42, an NCAA rule denying scholarships to athletes who failed to qualify academically, and once faced down a D.C. area drug dealer who had developed relationships with his players — the elder Thompson offered his thoughts from the back of the room.
"It’s a f—-ing school, man," Thompson II said. "That’s your responsibility, to deal with things like that."
