Last time Patrick Ewing had a child attending Georgetown, it was big news. That’s because Patrick Ewing Jr., of course, was a star basketball player who shared his father’s name.
The Hoyas legend’s youngest daughter arrived on campus this month, and I hadn’t heard the news until Georgetown students began excitedly noticing the one-time center around campus this weekend.
This was not exactly your normal father-helping-freshman-daughter situation, not when the father in question is the leading rebounder and second-leading scorer in school history.
As several of these students mentioned, running into Ewing on the Hilltop isn’t a horrible way to begin your college career. Now they just need Dikembe Mutombo to be their freshman comp teacher or something.
Been in Gtown less than 3 hours and already bumped into Patrick Ewing…Id say Im off to a good start.
