Videos of Men's Hoops Team Show Preparation for China
July 13, 2011 – Short video snippets showing how Georgetown’s men’s basketball team is preparing for its visit to China in August will begin running on the university's athletics website starting next week.
A variety of spots on campus were selected and scripts were drawn up by staff members for the videos.
The first video shot features senior guard Jason Clark (C’12) and sophomore guard Markel Starks (C’14) attending a Chinese 101 class with instructor Michael Wang (C’07), a member of the Georgetown staff who is helping to organize the trip.
The players in the class are learning simple phrases in the Chinese language, such as “Where is the basketball court?” Guest appearances in the video include Georgetown's mascot, Jack the Bulldog.
The final video features freshmen Tyler Adams (C’15), Mikael Hopkins (C’15) and Greg Whittington (C’15), first at the Georgetown Credit Union and then at Uncommon Grounds, a coffee shop on campus.
The videos will be airing on the GU Athletics website throughout the lead-up to the trip.
