Ewing, 57, is the only member of the Georgetown program who has tested positive for the virus, according to the athletic department’s statement. The number of COVID-19 cases in Washington D.C. has been falling, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But Ewing joins a list of sports figures who have publicly shared that they tested positive for the coronavirus that also includes New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton and New York Knicks owner James Dolan, among others.

Ewing is entering his fourth season as Georgetown’s coach with a 49-46 record. He launched his coaching career as an NBA assistant after retiring as a player in 2002. Ewing was an 11-time NBA All-Star after helping the Hoyas win the 1984 national championship and is regarded as one of the program’s top players of all-time.
