Blue and Grey gets 29 national looks in '13-14

September 5, 2013 - The 2013 - 2014 Georgetown men's basketball schedule has been released. For a complete schedule listing, click here.

The season starts half a world away in South Korea on November 8th. That contest, the Armed Forces Classic will be played at US Army base Camp Humphreys, with a 7p (EST) tip off and ESPN broadcast.

That network owns the rights to four additional Hoya games, all away from home, including three in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off in San Juan. Dates for that event are November 21st, 22nd and 24th, with Northeastern up first. If victorious, G'Town will play the winner of Charlotte/Kansas State, and the last game follows two days later. ESPN's final Hoya game occurs at Kansas, December 21st at noon.

As flagship network of the BIG EAST Conference, the Hoyas are broadcast on Fox Sports 1 an impressive 20 times this season, and once on the Fox Network. To find out where these games can be viewed, including 18 conference matchups, click here.

In-league, the Hoyas go home and home with all nine league members, a return to the classical conference structure.

DePaul is the traditional home, New Year's matchup at Verizon Center, while St. John's follows January 4th. A killer road trip follows, one that includes Providence, Butler and Xavier, January 8th, 11th and 15th, respectively.

The Marquette Golden Eagles fly into Verizon January 20th. G'Town gets its first taste of Creighton's Omaha, Neb., Century Link Center on the 25th of that month. Longtime rival Villanova comes to D.C. January 27th.

February starts with a juicy, Michigan State tilt (3p) at New York City's Madison Square Garden, part of the Super Bowl Weekend festivities on February 1st. To close the month, G'Town has seven league games, four away (DePaul, St. John's, Seton Hall and ending the month February 27 at Marquette, likely an important game for post season seating) plus three at Verizon Center (Butler, Providence, Xavier, perspective top conference teams all).

March sees Creighton travel to Verizon Center for the first time March 4th, while the regular season closes four days later at Villanova.

March 12th through 15th is BIG EAST Tournament time. As usual, it's set for Madison Square Garden.

CBS or that outlet's cable offering, CBS Network, will broadcast three Blue and Grey, intra-BIG EAST matchups; at Xavier, Butler and at Seton Hall, games played on January 15th, February 8th and 20th, respectively.

In sum, that's 29 nationally broadcast matchups, out of 30 regular season games. The December 17th, finals period hosting of Elon stands as the only time Georgetown won't receive a widespread audience this season.

Be sure to visit our Premium Court message board, where we discuss the schedule, one that not only features the BIG EAST in its first year of reorganization, but national powers from multiple conferences as well. Also there is talk of a broadcast arrangement between Fox Sports 1 and CBS.
