Mike Gillian’s squad will travel to Washington, DC on Monday, December 10 to take on John Thompson III’s Hoyas. This will be the first meeting between the Lancers and the Hoyas. Georgetown has played some games in the McDonough Arena the past couple of years, which holds 2,500, but the December contest will most likely be played at the Verizon Center in downtown Washington.
The Hoyas are coming off a 24-9 campaign where they defeated Belmont in the second round of the NCAA tournament and then lost to NC State in the round of 32 by only three points. Georgetown lost most of their firepower from last year but have added talented recruits D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera, Stephen Domingo, and others for their 2012-13 campaign.
Adding Georgetown is another quality game for Mike Gillian’s squad as the Lancers will also take on a second Big East opponent, Seton Hall, later in December. This year’s schedule also includes road trips to highly talented Creighton and Arkansas.
