The Georgetown Hoyas already knew that the non-conference portion of their 2016-2017 schedule included a trip to Hawaii for the 2016 Maui Invitational.
But on Tuesday, the team found their first round opponent and the rest of what is expected to be a loaded field for the premier non-conference tournament of the season.
The Hoyas will begin play on Nov. 21 at 4:30 p.m. ET when they take on the Oregon Ducks, fresh off a No. 1 seed in the 2016 NCAA Tournament and a trip to the Elite Eight.
The winner of that game will go on to face the winner of Wisconsin vs. Tennessee, which precedes the Hoyas' opening-round game, with the losers going on to face each other.
Georgetown is 1-2 all-time against Oregon, having lost the last two meetings.
The two teams last met in 2013 as part of the season-opening Armed Forces Classic, which was held on the Humphreys Air Force Base in South Korea. The Ducks won 82-75, despite 25 points from UCLA-transfer Joshua Smith, who was making his first appearance as a Hoya.
Defeating the Ducks will not be easy. Oregon has found stability under head coach Dana Altman and like in 2013 when the team returned future Pac-12 Player of the Year Joseph Young, the Ducks now return junior forward Dillon Brooks, who is thought to be one of the favorites for the conference's highest award this season.
The team also returns standout guard Tyler Dorsey and 6-10 big-man Chris Boucher, both of whom averaged over 12 points per game last season.
Depending on the results, Georgetown will either face Tennessee or Wisconsin. The Volunteers are in a similar situation as the Hoyas.
Gone is the team's top scorer in Kevin Punter, but in his second year in Knoxville, Rick Barnes returns a strong crop of young talent, led by Detrick Mostella and incoming freshman Kwe Parker, Jalen Johnsona nd Grant Williams.
A potential game against Wisconsin would serve as the much difficult of the two options, with the Badgers returning standout forward Nigel Hayes, along with junior Vitto Brown and sophomore Ethan Happ, who had one of the best freshman seasons in the country a year ago.
Competing in the other side of the bracket are basketball powers North Carolina and UConn, as well as Oklahoma State and the host Chaminade Silver Swords, the team famous for upsetting No. 1 Virginia and Player of the Year Ralph Sampson in the 1982 Maui Invitational.
But the non-conference portion of the season is often an unknown, and the 2016 Maui Invitational field provides a loaded list of top teams that could provide the Hoyas with problems and challenges they need to handle in order to find success in 2016-2017.
