Georgetown forward Akoy Agau's season is over before his first game with the Hoyas.
The Louisville transfer suffered a season-ending knee injury and will miss the 2015-16 season. Head coach John Thompson III made the announcement during an open practice for Hoya Hoop Club members, a source confirmed with CSNmidatlantic.com.
The 6-foot-8 forward committed to Georgetown in January after receiving minimal playing time with the Cardinals. The sophomore and former four-star recruit was expected to begin play with the Hoyas second semester after sitting out the first semester according to NCAA transfer rules.
Akoy's size and length was expected to help Georgetown offset key losses from last season's NCAA Tournament team as big men Joshua Smith and Mikael Hopkins graduated.
However, the Hoyas still have ample depth up front. Forward Isaac Copeland will look to build off his Big East All-Rookie campaign along with fellow rising sophomores Paul White and Trey Mourning. Senior Bradley Hayes, a surprise standout in the NCAA Tourney win over Eastern Washington, also returns. Freshman center Jessie Govan is expected to help anchor the middle while newcomer Marcus Derrickson provides perimeter range.
Georgetown opens the regular season Nov. 14 against Radford at Verizon Center.
Notes: Georgetown will hold closed scrimmages at Pittsburgh and against James Madison over the next few days.
