Georgetown-Florida Game in Navy-Marine Corps Classic to Air on NBC Sports Network

Sept. 26, 2012

WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University men's basketball team's game against Florida in the Navy-Marine Corps Classic on Friday, Nov. 9 will air live on the NBC Sports Network.

The game between the Hoyas and the Gators will tip off at 9 p.m. and be played aboard the deck of the USS Bataan at Mayport Naval Air Station in Jacksonville, Fla.

Preceding the basketball game will be a concert by award-winning country artists Little Big Town, performing songs from their new album "Tornado," including their No. 1 song "Pontoon."

The basketball classic is partnering with the NFL game to air the previous evening between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Indianapolis Colts, which will be televised nationally on the NFL Network on Nov. 8. The Jaguars and the Colts will kick-off the NFL's "Salute to Service" weekend making Jacksonville the destination city for military and sports for Veteran's Weekend.

The Navy-Marine Corps Classic is a partnership between the Department of the Navy and the City of Jacksonville to raise continued awareness for the military. Nearly one in four Jacksonville residents has a link to military service, whether as an active duty service member, a guardsmen or reservist, retired military member or a veteran. The collective local economic impact of the military and veteran community is $15 billion annually.

Proceeds from this game will go directly to benefit local military affairs efforts.
