Georgetown is one of the first schools in the Baltimore/D.C. corridor to release its nonconference schedule. George Washington also did so earlier this month.

(Side note/acknowledgment: Yes, this post lives up to the stereotype of a writer who covers ACC football dabbling in basketball whenever and wherever possible.)

Most of the Hoyas’ big games were already known. The aircraft carrier game against Florida (Nov. 9). The two games in the Legends Classic in Brooklyn. The SEC/Big East Challenge game against Tennessee. The Jimmy V Classic date with Texas.

Sprinkled in are a fair number of regional games against the likes of American, Mount St. Mary’s, Longwood and Towson.

(Also: The Dec. 15 game against Western Carolina already looks like a patented Georgetown noon tip at Verizon Center. The Washington Capitals are scheduled to play Tampa Bay at 7 that evening – lockout permitting, of course).

Anyway, now seems as good a time as any to look at the Hoyas’ nonconference schedule strength, which doesn’t look like it will have much dead weight bringing it down once March arrives)

Do note: Georgetown will play only two of Georgia, Indiana and UCLA in the Legends Classic.
