The best players in Georgetown men's basketball history

Yardbarker Logo By Jeff Mezydlo of Yardbarker | Slide 2 of 21: Mahnken's collegiate career at Georgetown was brief but certainly notable. The 6-foot-8 Mahnken played just one season for the Hoyas, but he averaged 15.4 points over 27 games during that stellar 1942-43 campaign, in which they went 22-5 and played for their first national championship. With that overall effort, Mahnken became the first basketball player in Georgetown history to earn first-team All-American honors. He also remains the only freshman in school history to be named a first-team selection.You may also like: The best players in Kansas basketball history
