We expected there to be a good turn out for the Hoyas and sure enough we were right. 66 of you voted for the All-Half Decade Georgetown Team, and here are the results.
33 votes (50.8%)
Chris Wright received a hearty 33 votes to be selected on the Georgetown All-Half Decade Team. Wright was an accomplished guard for the Hoyas in the late 2000s, who spent all four years of his college career in DC. He grew from being a role player on the Final Four team in the 2007-08 season to being a full-fledged starter by the time he left the program. Wright was a great offensive threat and is very much deserving of having a place on this team.
50 votes (75.8%)
DSR was unquestionably the most prodigious scorer in the last half decade and it comes as no surprise that he lands on the team with a high percentage of votes. DSR accumulated 75.8% of the vote and 50 of the total 66 votes received. Smith-Rivera averaged over 18 points per 40 possessions in three of his four seasons at Georgetown and had over 22 points per 100 possessions in each season as a Hoya, the most coming in the 2013-14 campaign when he had over 30.
39 votes (59.1%)
Like Wright, Austin Freeman was part of an accomplished backcourt that scored in bunches. Freeman averaged double figures in three of his four years at Georgetown and capped off his career with a mark of 17.6 points per game in the 2010-11 season, in which he also dropped 32.2 points per 100 possessions. His efficiency was also quite heralded as he had a career TS% of 60.6 percent and an eFG% of 57.1 percent as well. Freeman received 39 votes and 59.1 percent of the ballot.
65 votes (98.5%)
The last Hoyas draft pick also happens to be the man who received the most votes. Otto Porter’s career at Georgetown was certainly short but Porter’s impact on the floor made him a near-unanimous selection to the all-half decade team, as he amassed 65 of 66 votes cast. Porter was fantastic for the Hoyas especially in the 2012-13 season when he won the Big East Player of the Year award.
29 votes (43.9%)
The team rounds out with the selection of Henry Sims. Sims edged out other Hoyas Markel Starks and Jabril Trawick who came close to knocking him off his spot but Sims was able to stand up with 29 votes and 43.9 percent of the ballot. Sims was a role player in his first three years with the Hoyas but sprung out in his final year in DC when he averaged 11.6 points and 6.0 rebounds per game. Sims also amassed 26.6 points per 100 possessions and 13.8 rebounds per 100 possessions that year, coming away with very good numbers in his senior season that were enough to get him in the NBA where he still remains.
