The Georgetown Hoyas will continue to play junior forward Galen Alexander and freshman forward Myron Gardner while the university’s Office of Student Conduct investigates complaints that the players were involved in an apartment burglary. Gardner was accused of sexually assaulting and harassing a woman.

In the team’s 81-74 win on Wednesday night at Oklahoma State, Alexander and Gardner entered the game off the bench.

Less than an hour before the game, Hoyas coach Patrick Ewing released a statement saying the process is a “fair and equitable process for all students” and his players will not receive preferential treatment.

“I address this because I don’t want there to be any question about the culture of Hoya basketball. The G we wear on our uniforms is about much more than basketball,” Ewing wrote.

“It’s about a culture that expects the best of our players, both on and off the court. Having a strong culture is also about respecting and supporting those members of our community who come forward to report misconduct.”

Josh LeBlanc, a former Hoyas player also named in a pair of complaints in D.C. Superior Court, left the team and entered the NCAA transfer portal this week.
