Armed with a basketball program that has an established reputation for helping develop great big men who can cut it in the NBA, Georgetown University has provided some incredible players to the association.

New York Knicks' Patrick Ewing is one of their most famous alumni, establishing himself as one of the greatest centres in NBA history, making himself a defensive force and becoming an 11-time All-Star.

Two other legendary big men to come out of Georgetown are Alonzo Mourning, who spent most of his career with the Miami Heat, and Dikembe Mutombo, who is one of the greatest shot blockers of all time and won the Defensive Player of the Year award four times.

Contrary to their reputation of developing great big men, the college based out of Washington D.C. is also the alma mater of one of the all-time great guards in the NBA, Allen Iverson.
