    220 years ago today the first Catholic College was formed in the United States. The college took it's name from the Maryland town in which it was based. Since then, the town became part of the District of Columbia and the school -- Georgetown University -- has become a well known power in men's college basketball.

    Today's Top 10 recognizes the school on its anniversary by listing the Top 10 Hoyas of all time. Granted, much of this list will consist of players from the last 30 years, but there'll be a few older players mixed in there as well.

    1. Patrick Ewing
    2. Allen Iverson
    3. Sleepy Floyd
    4. Alonzo Morning
    5. Dikembe Mutombo
    6. Othella Harrington (fifth all-time in scoring, fourth in rebounding)
    7. John Mahnken (cornerstone of the school's first Final Four team in 1942)
    8. Reggie Williams
    9. Mike Sweetney
    10. Jim Barry(G'town's top scorer in the 60s whose career was sidelined due to injury)

    No fourth-team honorable mention for Paul Tagliabue, I guess.
