Georgetown to open season against UMBC


Georgetown will open its season against UMBC and face off against longtime rival Syracuse on January 9, the school announced Friday in its partially released season schedule. 

The Hoyas first six games will be played at McDonough Arena without fans. The team's first six games include a visit from the currently15th-ranked West Virginia Mountaineers, third-ranked Villanova Wildcats and Connecticut Huskies, who just returned to the Big East.

The Hoyas round off their released schedule with a former Big East Conference matchup with Syracuse — they meet for the 96th time Saturday, January 9 at the Dome. The Hoyas walked away victorious the last time the two teams met, 89-79.

According to a Georgetown spokesperson, the additional schedule will be released in waves and a determination about where the remainder of 2021 games will be played and if fans will be allowed in the arena will be made at a later date.
