WASHINGTON — Hall of Fame center Patrick Ewing and sports agent David Falk are donating $3.3 million to Georgetown’s new athletics center.
The school said Monday the amount of the gift reflects the uniform No. 33 that Ewing wore at Georgetown and in the NBA.
Ewing played on the Georgetown’s only NCAA championship team in 1984. The center will be named for his coach at Georgetown, John Thompson Jr., who led the Hoyas for 27 years.
The groundbreaking ceremony for the $62 million project is scheduled for September. It will include practice courts, meeting rooms, coaches’ offices and weight rooms.
