WASHINGTON (AP) - Georgetown starting center Joshua Smith is academically ineligible and will miss the remainder of the season.
Coach John Thompson III made the announcement on Friday. Smith was third in scoring at 11.5 points for the Hoyas (11-7, 3-3 Big East), despite missing five games because of grades. He shot 65 percent from the field in his first season after transferring from UCLA.
The 6-foot-10, 350-pound Smith averaged 3.4 rebounds in 13 games.
Thompson called it ''disappointing'' that Smith will miss the rest of the season, noting ''so much was geared'' toward his presence.
