Last year on opening night, The Hoyas lost a heartbreaker to Dartmouth in what eventually led to a 6-25 overall record.

Tonight marks the beginning of a new era on the court for Georgetown, as the Hoyas will likely have an entirely new starting lineup from a year ago. This roster features eight transferred players and two freshmen.

Qudus Wahab returns to Georgetown after a year away at Maryland. He spent his freshman season with a Hoya team that won the Big East Tournament. He’s my player to watch in the opener as the starting center for a team that’ll need to control the paint to find success in 2022-23.

It’s crucial for head coach Patrick Ewing to get his Hoyas off to a fast start against a Coppin State team that plays its second game in as many days.

  • Head Coach: Juan Dixon (6th season, 42-109 record at Coppin State)

  • Record: 0-1 (0-0 in MEAC), 9-23 (6-8 in MEAC last season)

  • Last Time Out: Lost 82-59 @ Charlotte on 11/7/22

  • Player to Watch: Sam Sessoms

You don’t normally see teams play back-to-back games, but that’s what Coppin State is dealing with to open up the 2022-23 campaign.

The Eagles were off to a 1-14 start a season ago and opened up the year on Monday night with a 82-59 defeat against Charlotte.

Senior guard Sam Sessoms was the only Eagle who scored in double-figures, pouring in 24 points in 28 minutes. He was 10-15 from the field and did not miss a two-point shot all game (2-7 from three).
