Georgetown announced its 2002-03 men's basketball schedule yesterday, one that has intriguing non-conference matchups against Duke, UCLA and Virginia in addition to a rigorous Big East slate.
The Hoyas, 19-11 last season, play at Virginia Dec.28 and play host to UCLA on Feb.8, two of their four major network television appearances this season. The Hoyas visit Duke's Cameron Indoor Stadium Jan.8, one of their four games on ESPN and their first meeting with the Blue Devils since the 1990-91 season.
Georgetown closes the season with four home games including clashes with division foes Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Notre Dame in its last six, all of which should have an impact on the final league standings.
For the first time in four seasons, the Hoyas won't play a regular-season game at McDonough Arena. They'll open the season Nov.1 with an exhibition contest at McDonough before playing Grambling at MCI Center in the season opener Nov.22.
As part of the Big East's unbalanced schedule, Georgetown won't play East Division foes Connecticut, Boston College or, for the first time since the Wildcats joined the conference in 1980, Villanova.
