The Washington Times - October 28, 2011, 02:19PM

Well, it’s just about here.

The first exhibition college basketball game in the D.C./Baltimore corridor is Saturday. The first one for a D.C.-area team is Monday.


And while schedules can and do change, it seemed like a quality courtesy to pass along the contents of a file certain to be pulled up on the D1scourse laptop many times in the coming months.

So here it is, a rundown of college basketball in the D.C./Baltimore area (plus the Old Dominion’s two ACC teams). That covers 15 teams total: American, Coppin State, George Mason, George Washington, Georgetown, Howard, Loyola, Maryland, Morgan State, Mount St. Mary’s, Navy, Towson, UMBC, Virginia and Virginia Tech.

Again, a caveat: Game times do change, so if you’re checking out this list in, say, January, be sure to follow up.
