BIG EAST Announces Men's Basketball Conference Matchups for 2010-11 Season

June 24, 2010

WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University men's basketball team will host five conference opponents that appeared in the NCAA Tournament at Verizon Center and will play 15 league games against teams that advanced to the postseason as the BIG EAST Conference announced league matchups for the 2010-11 season on Thursday afternoon.

The 2010-11 season will mark the fourth year the BIG EAST Conference features an 18-game league schedule. Each team will play 12 opponents once and three teams twice. This is the earliest the BIG EAST home-and-away schedule has been released since the conference moved to this format.

The Hoyas will play home-and-home series against NCAA Tournament participant Syracuse (30-5), as well as Cincinnati (19-16) and St. John's (17-16), both teams that were selected to play in the National Invitation Tournament.

Other home games include appearances by four NCAA Tournament teams, including national semifinalist West Virginia (31-7), as well as Louisville (20-13), Marquette (22-12) and Pittsburgh (25-9). The Hoyas will also host games against DePaul and Providence.

Georgetown's nine-game BIG EAST road schedule includes eight games against teams that played in the postseason. In addition to away games against Syracuse, Cincinnati and St. John's, the Hoyas will visit Connecticut (NIT, 18-16), Notre Dame (NCAA, 23-12), Seton Hall (NIT, 19-13), USF (20-13) and Villanova (NCAA, 25-8), as well as a date at Rutgers.

The decisions regarding repeat opponents are based on natural interest, geography, rivalries and television contractual obligations.
