On Monday afternoon, Patrick Ewing’s Hoyas learned that they will be gaining more help in the back court, as transfer guard Jay Heath will be eligible for Georgetown’s next game against Northwestern.
“I’m looking forward to having Jay Heath available for us.,” Ewing said in a release. “He is a talented player and another piece to our puzzle this season.”
Heath is a 6-foot-3, 200-pound guard who averaged more than ten points per game last season at Arizona State. Prior to his time in Tempe, Heath played for Boston College, starting 49 games in two years for the Eagles.
Heath is sure to make an impact for Georgetown alongside Duquesne transfer Primo Spears, talented LSU transfer Brandon Murray, UConn transfer Akok Akok, and others. On Tuesday night, Heath looks to hit the court for the first time in his third uniform against Northwestern as part of the Gavitt Games.
The Hoyas have gotten off to a 2-0 start with wins over Coppin State and Green Bay. In the win over Coppin, Spears led the way with 28 points, while Bryson Mozone added 20 and Murray followed with 18. In the most recent win over Green Bay, Spears and Murray combined for 40 points, while Maryland transfer Qudus Wahab followed with 18 points and seven rebounds.
