Joshua Smith Will Resurrect Career With the Georgetown Hoyas

Joshua Smith will not get to join the team right away, but he will get to play for the Georgetown Hoyas at some point in the 2013-14 college basketball season. With that said, he will resurrect his college hoops career once he is able to hit the court.

Smith only played 13.5 minutes per game last season and averaged 5.2 points per game and 4.2 rebounds per game. The season before saw him play 17.2 minutes per game, while he averaged 9.9 points per game and 4.9 rebounds per game.

He has the talent to score quite a bit of points per game and be a force on the boards. He does stand at 6’10”, which is pretty solid at the college level.

Who knows what kind of role he will receive in the upcoming season, but he is definitely talented enough to start and be a solid player.

Georgetown loses its best player in Otto Porter Jr. in the 2013-14 season. If he would have returned, the Hoyas could have been a top five team to start off the season. That is clearly not the case, though, since Porter Jr. decided to take his talents to the next level.

Still, many players are returning to the Hoyas and they will compete for a conference title and possibly even a national championship.

Once Smith is able to play, he should be used a lot. He still could land on an NBA team when he decides to go pro, but one good season with the Hoyas would help resurrect his career.
