Georgetown basketball schedule released

Sports,Campus Confidential,Craig Stouffer

The top games of Georgetown’s schedule had already been announced before today, but the rest of the Hoyas schedule has been officially filled out, along with some of the crucial television information.

A couple things jump out. First, there are more late afternoon and evening games this season on the Big East slate. Whether that means something or is just a quirk of scheduling isn’t immediately clear. Besides Saturday conference games, the Hoyas have five Big East games on Wednesdays.

Second, even though the Florida game is in Florida, the Hoyas don’t play a true non-conference road game, the first time they’ve done so since the 2008-09 season.

The biggest games of the conference slate include the opener on the road at Marquette on Jan. 5 followed by the home opener against Pittsburgh on Jan. 8, with a late-starting 9 p.m. tip.

Louisville comes to Washington on Jan. 26 at noon, and Marquette arrives Feb. 11. The Hoyas play key road games only against Notre Dame (Jan. 21), Cincinnati (Feb. 15), Connecticut (Feb. 27) and Villanova (Mar. 5.).
