Coach John Thompson, a champion for his players.

We have lost a legend and history maker, former Georgetown Basketball coach John Thompson. Thompson who coach at Georgetown from 1972-1999 led the Hoyas to the NCAA title in 1984 and became the first African-American coach to win a major college Championship.  We are forever thankful for his contribution to College Basketball and his dedication to the students he coached.  RIP
