(born Frederick Michael Laughna) is a former basketball
player for Georgetown University
Laughna, who attended Saint Benedict's Preparatory School
in Newark, New Jersey
, remains one of the top scorers in Georgetown history, ranked above NBA
star Dikembe Mutombo
. At the time of his graduation, Laughna held most of Georgetown's scoring records, but the advent of the three-point shot
and the slam dunk
made it possible for future players to accumulate points more rapidly.
Laughna is a member of the Georgetown University Basketball Hall of Fame, and is ranked 15th on Georgetown's "Top 100 Players" list. He was also included as an honorable mention on the All Century Team.
On February 11, 1971, in a game against NYU, Laughna scored a career high 35 points. Fellow Georgetown alumnus Patrick Ewing
also scored 35 points as his career high.
Laughna has played professional basketball
for a number of European teams.
