Season recap[edit]

Georgetown defeated crosstown rival George Washington twice this season, giving the Hoyas a four-game winning streak against George Washington dating to the previous season. The streak would reach 19 wins before George Washington suspended the series after the 1923-24 season.[3][4][5]



Georgetown players did not wear numbers on their jerseys this season. The first numbered jerseys in Georgetown men '​s basketball history would not appear until the 1933-34 season.[6]
