WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University women's basketball squad released its 2013-14 non-conference opponents on Tuesday. The Hoyas will play five home games and seven road contests including trips to Alaska and Puerto Rico.
Georgetown will face four NCAA Tournament qualifiers as well as two squads that competed in the WNIT.
The season tips off at home on November 8 against the Richmond University Spiders at 7 p.m. The Spiders went to the WNIT last season going 16-16 and with a mark of 6-8 in the Atlantic 10 Conference. Georgetown is 8-6 all-time against Richmond.
This will be followed by a trip to South Dakota State for a contest against the Jackrabbits on November 15. SDSU won the Summit League a season ago and earned an NCAA Tournament berth. Last year, SDSU came the McDonough Arena and downed the Hoyas, 64-58.
The Blue & Gray will return home for contests on November 17 and 23. On Sunday, GU will host 2012 Final Four-participant the University of California- Berkeley. The Golden Bears had an impressive season going 32-3 overall. Georgetown met Cal in the team's Thanksgiving tournament a season ago and fell in the championship game by a score of 72-56.
The following weekend, the Blue & Gray will host the Princeton University Tigers. Princeton won the Ivy League with a mark of 13-1 and an overall record of 22-7 to advance to the NCAA Tournament. The Hoyas have a 2-1 series advantage over the Tigers with the most recent meeting in the 2011 NCAA Tournament where GU won, 65-49.
The Blue & Gray will spend the days leading up to Thanksgiving in The Land of the Midnight Sun. Georgetown will participate in the Carrs/Safeway Great Alaskan Shootout facing the Colonels of Nicholls State in the semifinals. Last year, Nicholls State went 19-11 overall and 11-7 in the Southland Conference. The following day, Georgetown will face either host Alaska-Anchorage or the University of California- Riverside. This will be the first meeting with any of the three opponents.
The Hoyas will host local-rival George Washington University on December 3 and Penn State University on December 8. GW was 14-16 last season as the Blue & Gray tallied one of the wins by a score of 70-54. GU fell to Penn State last year as the Lady Lions went on to advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Georgetown is 16-17 all-time against the Colonials and 1-4 against Penn State.
In the days before Christmas, the Hoyas will travel to Puerto Rico for two games in the Puerto Rico Classic before rounding out non-conference play on December 28 at the University of Florida. The Gators were 22-15 overall earning a WNIT berth and advancing to the semifinals of the tournament. GU is 1-2 against Florida in the series records.
Though the Hoyas lost a talented senior class, they return seven players and are bringing in a highly-touted freshman class of six.
