Georgetown, Kansas agree to 4-year hoops series

- Associated Press - Thursday, October 25, 2012

LAWRENCE, Kan.  — College basketball powerhouses Kansas and Georgetown have agreed to play annually over the next four seasons with the first game scheduled for Dec. 21, 2013, at Allen Fieldhouse.

The Jayhawks will also host the Hoyas during the 2015-16 season. The two teams will play at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C., during the 2014-15 and 2016-17 seasons.

Despite their pedigrees, Kansas and Georgetown have only met twice previously.

The Jayhawks beat Georgetown in the quarterfinals of the Maui Invitational last season, while the Hoyas prevailed in the Southeast Regional of the 1987 NCAA tournament.
