South Korea - The Georgetown University men's basketball team had a busy day on Thursday, its first full day at Camp Humphreys in South Korea in advance of the Armed Forces Classic. The Hoyas play Oregon on Friday, Nov. 8 at 8 p.m. ET (Saturday, Nov. 9, 10 a.m. Korea) on ESPN.

The Hoyas were at it early in the morning, practicing for nearly two hours at the MP Hill Fitness Center on Thursday morning. Head Coach John Thompson III took time during the practice to visit with ESPN announcers Dan Shulman, Jay Bilas, Andy Katz and Jay Williams.

Following practice, the team was back to the hotel on base for lunch and a bit of rest before heading to a tour of the Super Hanger, where they visited with soldiers and toured base helicopters.

Senior forward Nate Lubick (Southborough, Mass./St. Mark's) and guard Markel Starks (Accokeek, Md./Georgetown Prep) were both interviewed by members of the public affairs offices from Camp Humphreys and talked about their impressions of the camp and the tour of the base.

"This was just a great opportunity to get a close up look at what life is like for the men and women who protect our country," Lubick said. "We're very fortunate to have the opportunity to come here and play a game and to thank them for all they do."

"We're blessed to have the chance to come here and to see and tour the base and the helicopters," Starks said. "It's amazing all that they do and we're really thankful to get the chance to meet everyone here."

The Hoyas also held a Kid's Clinic for children of soldiers on the base from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Georgetown will practice on Friday morning and then serve lunch to soldiers and participate in a meet and greet in the early afternoon.
