WASHINGTON - Georgetown to Play Oregon at Camp Humphreys in South Korea

WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University men's basketball team will play the University of Oregon in the 2013 Armed Forces Classic at Camp Humphreys in South Korea - a United States Army base - on Friday, Nov. 8 on ESPN, it was announced today.

The second installment of the classic will pit the Hoyas against the Ducks as part of ESPN's Veteran's Week initiative honoring the men and women who are serving and who have served in the United States military, both at home and abroad.

"We are honored to be selected to participate in the 2013 Armed Forces Classic," Thompson said. "The opportunity to play at Camp Humphreys in South Korea is unique and special. It will be a privilege to perform in front of the men and women who serve and protect our country. The game is important but above and beyond the competition, it will be an unparalleled learning experience for all in our program."

The game will be housed in the Army's three-story, 110,000 square foot Humphreys Community Fitness Center - home to three full-sized basketball courts, an indoor pool, a 200-meter running track, dynamic weight and cardio equipment, an indoor rock climbing wall, racquetball courts, cardio equipment and a range of fitness classes.

"Camp Humphreys is extremely proud to host this year's Armed Forces Classic," Commander Colonel Darin S. Conkright said. "I can't think of a better way to provide the soldiers and families stationed here on Freedom's Frontier a taste of home than through a sporting event of this magnitude."

While at Camp Humphreys, the teams will participate in a variety of activities surrounding the game, including serving the troops at a dining facility, conducting youth clinics for families of the troops, holding open practice and touring the base. Additional details, including game time and on-base initiatives, will be announced at a later date.

Georgetown finished the 2012-13 season with a 25-7 record and earned a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Hoyas won a share of the BIG EAST Regular Season Championship and were the No. 1 seed in the tournament after posting a 14-4 record in league play. The Hoyas were ranked No. 8 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll and No. 8 in the USA Today Coaches' poll and closed out the regular season with 12 wins in 13 games. The Hoyas are one of only four schools in the country to be ranked in the Associated Press Top 10 at least once in each of the last seven seasons and Georgetown is also ranked fifth nationally in Associated Press top 25 poll appearances (116) since January 2006.

 

 

The Armed Forces Classic is a series of Division I college men's basketball games to be played on U.S. military facilities worldwide over a five-year rotation (one game per branch of service at a different military installation), beginning at Ramstein Air Base in Germany in 2012. The classic is owned and operated by ESPN Regional Television (ERT).
