Ewing: Hoyas players ‘given no extraordinary treatment’


STILLWATER, Okla. – Shortly before the beginning of Georgetown’s first game since declaring two of its main five scorers are never again individuals from the group, Hoyas mentor Patrick Ewing gave an announcement on the issue, saying players are “given no unique treatment with regards to their conduct and discipline.”Written remarks from Ewing and Georgetown athletic executive Lee Reed were discharged about 20 minutes before the tipoff against Oklahoma State on Wednesday night.Georgetown reported Monday that beginning stage monitor James Akinjo and hold forward Josh LeBlanc were both off the roster.Reed said Tuesday the two sophomores were trying to transfer.LeBlanc and two different players, Myron Gardner and Galen Alexander, have had controlling requests mentioned against them in the midst of charges they bugged a female understudy and took a few things from her home. Transitory limiting requests recorded by an alternate understudy against LeBlanc and Alexander were granted.No criminal accusations have been filed.Gardner and Alexander are still in the group and both showed up in Wednesday’s game.Reed has said that Akinjo was not associated with the charges including different players. Georgetown has not said why Akinjo is no longer on the team.”While I can’t remark on singular understudies, it would be ideal if you realize that we pay attention to direct issues,” Ewing’s announcement said.
