10:06 AM ET 01.25 | The Georgetown men's basketball team will be without starting center Joshua Smith for the remainder of the season because of an ongoing academic issue, Coach John Thompson III announced Friday, leaving the Hoyas with a major void at a critical position as they embark on the most rugged portion of their schedule. Smith had missed the last five games since playing 23 minutes during a 77-60 victory over St. John's on Jan. 4 at Verizon Center. Four days later, school officials revealed the junior transfer from UCLA did not accompany the team for its game at Providence because of academic reasons.

Always a sad time of the year when these kids first learn they were suppose to go to classes too. Quite a shock to them. Very traumatic.

Exactly.

One-and-done players plan on skipping classes in the spring semester. Coach Bob Knight has been very vocal about this trend in CBB.

It's even more sad when they don't make the effort in the fall semester.
