Two seasons later, Ewing and the boys would be back in the Championship and would be victorious this time in a nine point win over Houston. Amazingly, Ewing would lead his team back to the NCAA Championship game again, just one season later.
Georgetown was a heavy favorite to knock off fellow Big East rival Villanova in the Championship. Ewing and his teammates would be surprised by the Wildcats in a 66-64 defeat however.
After college, Ewing of course went on to the New York Knicks and a Hall of Fame NBA career. His play, in both college and the NBA, puts him in the ranks of the best basketball centers of all-time.
