Men’s basketball schedule released
Let the countdown officially begin. The Georgetown men’s basketball team announced its 2014-2015 schedule today, with only 67 days (but who’s really counting?) separating Hoyas fans from watching their dear Blue and Gray take the court for the first time this year on November 15 against St. Francis (NY).
Along with their 18 games against Big East opponents, the Hoyas have a challenging 11-game non-conference schedule, which includes three games against the talented field of the Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament in the Bahamas over Thanksgiving break, a game at New York’s Madison Square Garden against Indiana on Dec. 27, and a home date at Verizon Center with national powerhouse Kansas on Dec. 10.
The Blue and Gray are scheduled to play at Verizon Center 16 times this season, nine of which will be played on weekend days. One disappointing note, however, is the dates and times of the more attractive home games. The Hoyas’ Dec. 10 game against Kansas falls during the beginning of the final exam period, while matchups against Big East contenders such as Villanova, Marquette, Providence, and St. John’s are all scheduled on weeknights, with some of those slated for a tardy 9:00 p.m. tipoff.
Luckily for Hoyas fans, all of the team’s games will be nationally televised, with a majority of them airing on Fox Sports 1.
For those eager to make their future plans around the team’s games this year, below is the full 2014-15 schedule.
