New York Knicks Hall of Fame basketball player and Georgetown University coach Patrick Ewing revealed Friday night he was hospitalized after testing positive for COVID-19.

“I have tested positive for COVID-19,” Ewing said in a statement. “This virus is serious and should not be taken lightly. I want to encourage everyone to stay safe and take care of yourselves and your loved ones.”

Ewing, 57, just completed his third season as head basketball coach at his alma mater. No other members of that team or staff have tested positive, Georgetown said. The coach has been isolated at a local hospital, according to the school.
