Georgetown | 6-9 | 223 | Forward

Meet the leading scorer on the team that gave Duke its first loss this season. Meet yet another former standout out of Los Angeles Westchester High.

Bowman is a senior who has suffered through the struggles of Georgetown's once-proud program, through the difficulty of not experiencing an NCAA Tournament berth since arriving on campus.

A third-team All-Big East Conference selection as a junior, Bowman averages 11.7 points this season. He and Hoyas teammate Ashanti Cook led Westchester to a state title in 2002.

The two have played together since meeting on a fifth-grade AAU team.

“As far as basketball players, I think we have matured,” Bowman told reporters in November. “Luckily, I've had someone from back home who understands me better than anyone else.”

Bowman – who tested the NBA draft process following last season before ultimately removing his name and returning to school – had 21 points and eight rebounds against Duke, when the Hoyas' spread offense accounted for several easy baskets on a day Georgetown shot 61 percent.

“You walk around campus and everyone is excited (about basketball),” he said. “We are too.”
