Could not have happened to a more deserving program.
Short term memory loss here. Karl Charles, Jack Stevens and Will Powers.
The premise as I read it is that Georgetown goes out and recruits kids that really don't have the academic qualifications to be in the school, sets up special accommodations, and got burned by reaping what they sow.I don't think HC does anything close to that for its athletes.
I suppose you could make the argument that the three in question shouldn't have met the academic standards of HC if they were stupid enough to get caught doing something widely done.
Yup, the three individuals acted foolishly and violated an NCAA rule. Unless you're suggesting HC also messed by not monitoring these players closely enough, I don't follow the logic of implying HC was deserving of the incident.
Georgetown has shown how little integrity it really has by playing these guys even with multiple claims (robbery and assault) filed against them. It shows that it has zero shame. Winning basketball games is far more important to the school than setting a an example of decency.
I am reminded that "those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones." HC has had unfortunate things happen recently so I believe we should hold up on any stone throwing. I believe HC did well to identify the problems and to address them with disciplinary action against the students involved. Hopefully, there will be no such incidents in the future (or at least far fewer than in the last few years).
Will Powers is apparently in solid academic standings and is a member of the HC Lacrosse team for the upcoming season. Jack Stevens is enrolled at Cornell University.
Powers must be a pretty good athlete. Walked on to a D-I basketball team. Then, after most likely not playing lacrosse for the last three years, makes that team as well. Not too many people can play two different D-I sports

Back to Georgetown. Two more players have entered the portal.
Georgetown men’s basketball players Myron Gardner and Galen Alexander, who were each named in at least one of two civil complaints that included allegations of sexual harassment and assault, announced Friday their intent to transfer from the university.
Gardner, a freshman, announced his decision in a statement released to The Washington Post. An hour later, Alexander, a junior, followed on social media.
In his announcement, which was posted on Twitter, Alexander criticized the university for what he called unfair treatment in the wake of two complaints filed last month in D.C. Superior Court that implicated him and two other members of the basketball team. ..... Alexander and Gardner became the third and fourth players to transfer from Georgetown in two weeks. It leaves the Hoyas with nine scholarship players on the roster, two of whom haven’t entered a game this season. The latest departures came on the eve of the Hoyas’ game against longtime rival Syracuse at Capital One Arena in Washington. ... Following that Dec. 2 announcement, a public records search showed that two Georgetown students filed separate complaints against members of the basketball team. The first was filed on Nov. 5 against LeBlanc and Alexander and includes allegations of burglary, threats of bodily harm and verbal threats.
The second, filed against LeBlanc, Alexander and Gardner on Nov. 12, was mutually resolved Monday without the admission of or finding of guilt. The complaint included allegations of sexual harassment and assault and was resolved when Gardner, Alexander and LeBlanc agreed to stay at least 50 feet away from the complainant under a civil protection order, according to court documents.
He is not on the current basketball team. Did he play for them last year?
Tyrone Cohen IS on the 2019-2020 Pace basketball team and is listed as a senior.
He did not play last year. Karl played for HC during the 2017-18 season right into second semester. I assume that last year would have been a transfer sit out year
So Charles is enrolled at Pace now but not on the team this year or last year? Maybe he just decided to move on from basketball. If he moved down from DI to D2 he would have been eligible to play right away.
