The 2010–11 Georgetown Hoyas men's basketball team represented Georgetown University in the 2010–2011 NCAA Division I basketball season. In November, the team played in and won the Charleston Classic tournament.[2] During the February 23 game against the Cincinnati Bearcats, senior Chris Wright injured his hand, and later had surgery that kept him out of the final conference games. Without him, the Hoyas lost in their first game in the 2011 Big East Men's Basketball Tournament. The team ultimately received an at-large invitation as a 6 seed in the 2011 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament,[3] where they lost in the second round to Virginia Commonwealth. They finished the season 21–11, 10–8 in Big East play.

Previous season[edit]

In their previous season, the team finished the season 23–11, and 10–8 in Big East play, and advanced to the championship game of the 2010 Big East Men's Basketball Tournament. Sophomore Greg Monroe declined to return, and entered the NBA Draft where he was selected by the Detroit Pistons.
