Georgetown University Archives, Booth Family Center for Special Collections, Washington, D.C.
Georgetown College (1789-1815)
Adrion was elected co-captain of the Georgetown basketball team for the 1969-1970 season. He was the winner of the Daly MVP Award in 1969 (despite missing the last five games of that season after suffering torn cartilage in his right knee) and in 1970. The leading scorer in 1968, he was also the leading rebounder in 1968 and 1969. He is in the top 10 for all-time scoring average and career rebound average and holds the record for most rebounds in a game, 29. This record came in a December 2, 1968 game against American. Adrion’s 40 point, 29 rebound effort helped the Hoyas to a 85-78 win and stands as one of the great performances in Georgetown's sporting history.
