Birth date: 
May 20, 1984

Jamaican-American professional basketball player, Patrick Aloysius Ewing, Jr. was born on May 20th, 1984 in Boston, Massachusetts. He is the oldest son of retired Basketball Hall of Famer and New York Knicks legend Patrick Ewing and Sharon Campbell. For the season 2013-14 he has a contract with Greek team Trikala B.C. Although he is American-born, Ewing represents Jamaica in international competition. His father, Patrick Ewing, was born in Jamaica.

He first signed with Indiana University on May 1, 2003. He played two seasons at Indiana before following his father's footsteps by transferring to Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. in 2005. Under the NCAA transfer rules, Patrick Ewing, Jr., had to sit out the 2005–06 season. He returned in 2006–07 season, playing 36 games for the Hoyas.

In the 2007–08 season, he participated in the College Slam Dunk Contest at St. Mary's University in San Antonio, Texas during Final Four weekend. As a senior with the Hoyas, Ewing averaged 6.1 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 34 games, winning the Big East Sixth Man of the Year award. Ewing cites the Hoyas offense as the reason why his offensive numbers were low in comparison to what he would go on to average in the D-League.

In college, Ewing wore the same jersey number (#33) as his father. Ewing's coach at Georgetown, John Thompson III, is the son of John Thompson, Jr., who coached the elder Ewing at Georgetown.
