The 2006–07 team, which marked the 100th anniversary of the program, is the most recent to advance to the Final Four in the NCAA Tournament.

This is a list of the seasons completed by the Georgetown Hoyas men's basketball team, the most successful and well-known sports program at Georgetown University. They won the NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship in 1984 (over the University of Houston) under coach John Thompson, Jr. The Hoyas also reached and lost the Championship game in 1943 (to Wyoming), 1982 (to North Carolina), and 1985 (to Big East rival Villanova). The Hoyas have appeared in the NCAA Tournament 29 times in all and most recently made it to the Final Four in 2007.

The Hoyas have appeared in the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) twelve times – turning down an invitation to the NIT on a thirteenth occasion – and twice have advanced to the NIT final, losing in 1993 to Minnesota and in 2003 to Big East rival St. John's.

The team has been very successful in the Big East: it won or tied for the regular-season conference titles in 1980, 1984, 1987, 1989, 1992, 2007, and 2008, and won regular-season division titles in 1996 and 1997. The team was even more dominant in the Big East Men's Basketball Tournament during the 1980s: it won in 1980, 1982, 1984, 1985, 1987, and 1989, and later won in 2007 as well.[1]

During the five seasons immediately preceding the formation of the Big East, Georgetown was very successful in the Eastern College Athletic Conference '​s regional Division I ECAC Men's Basketball Tournaments, winning regional championships in 1975,[2] 1976,[3] and 1979.[4]

In 1939, Georgetown was the regular season co-champion of the Eastern Intercollegiate Conference.

Graphic of Georgetown Hoyas AP Poll Rankings, 1979-2010[edit]

Georgetown Hoyas AP Poll ranking 1979—2010

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The Associated Press began men's basketball team rankings during the 1948–49 season. The Coaches' Poll began publishing its rankings during the 1950–51 season.
  2. ^ An elected student manager led the team during the 1906-07 season.
  3. ^ a b c d e f g The Eastern Intercollegiate Conference never held a post-season tournament during its seven seasons of existence.
  4. ^ a b Georgetown suspended all of its athletic programs from 1943 to 1945 because of World War II.
  5. ^ First season for the AP Poll
  6. ^ First season for the Coaches' Poll
  7. ^ a b c d e Although remaining an independent, Georgetown participated annually from 1975 through 1979 in one of the regional ECAC Men's Basketball Tournaments. The Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) – not a true athletic conference, but rather a loose sports federation of colleges and universities in the eastern United States – organized these tournaments beginning in 1975 so that ECAC members who were NCAA Division I independents in basketball could play in post-season tournaments that gave their winners automatic bids to the NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament. In this way, these ECAC tournaments played the same role for independents that conference tournaments did for members of basketball conferences.
  8. ^ a b c Georgetown was a founding member of the original Big East Conference of 1979-2013. In 2013, Georgetown left the original Big East to become a founding member of the new Big East Conference. The original Big East Conference then was renamed the American Athletic Conference.
  9. ^ Thompson resigned on January 8, 1999, and Esherick immediately succeeded him as head coach.
