Georgetown Announces Men's Basketball Non Conference Schedule

Sept. 1, 2016

WASHINGTON - Highlighted by dates against Maryland, Connecticut and Syracuse as well as a trip to Hawaii to play in the Maui Invitational, the Georgetown University men's basketball non conference schedule for the 2016-17 season was released on Thursday.

The Hoyas will play 12 non conference games before the start of the BIG EAST Conference schedule in late December, and then have one more game out of conference in January.

"We will be tested early and often against quality programs," Head Coach John Thompson III said. "We welcome a few traditional rivals to our schedule and also face a daunting field in Maui."

The 2016-17 regular season starts with three-straight games at home, starting on Saturday, Nov. 12 against the University of South Carolina-Upstate at Verizon Center. The Hoyas remain at home on Tuesday, Nov. 15 for a rematch against local rival Maryland as part of the Gavitt Games. Georgetown visited Maryland last year, falling 75-71.

Two days later, the Blue & Gray will return to campus, hosting Arkansas State at McDonough Arena on Thursday, Nov. 17. It will be Georgetown's first game in its on-campus home since beating West Virginia, 77-65, in the 2014 National Invitation Tournament first round. It will be the team's first regular season game at McDonough since playing Old Dominion in 2009-10.

The team then travels to play in the 33rd edition of Basketball in Paradise at the Maui Invitational. The Hoyas will play Oregon in their opening game and then play either Tennessee or Wisconsin. The other half of the bracket includes host Chaminade, Connecticut, North Carolina and Oklahoma State. This will be Georgetown's first appearance in the Maui Invitational since the 2011-12 season.

Six more non conference games will be played before the start of conference play, including four at home. The Hoyas will host Howard on Sunday, Nov. 27 and then host Coppin State on Wednesday, Nov. 30, both games at Verizon Center. Georgetown will then host Elon University on Sunday, Dec. 4 at Verizon Center as part of the BB&T Classic.

 

 

The Blue & Gray will travel to Miami to play LaSalle University on Saturday, Dec. 10 at AmericanAirlines Arena as part of the Second Annual Hoophall Miami Invitational. The game will air on ESPN2 at 2 p.m.

One of college basketball's great rivalries returns on Saturday, Dec. 17, as Georgetown travels to play longtime rival Syracuse at the Carrier Dome. The game will be shown live on ESPN. The teams renewed their rivalry last year at Verizon Center, with the Hoyas posting a 79-71 win. Before the start of BIG EAST Conference play, the Hoyas will host UNC Greensboro at Verizon Center on Thursday, Dec. 22. . The Hoyas will play their final non conference game of the regular season on Saturday, Jan. 14, hosting long-time rival Connecticut at Verizon Center. The game will air live on FOX.
