Georgetown to Play Alabama In The 2011 BIG EAST/SEC Challenge

The Georgetown Hoyas will play the Alabama Crimson Tide on December 1st in the 2011 BIG EAST/SEC Challenge.  The game will take place at Alabama, and is a rematch of Georgetown's only appearance in the competition to date when the Hoyas defeated Alabama by a score of 70-60 in Birmingham in 2007.   

More after The Jump:

The new BIG EAST/SEC Challenge format features 12 games over three days beginning on the Thursday after Thanksgiving of each year. The 2011 schedule will include four games a day Thursday, Dec. 1 through Saturday, Dec. 3. In an odd inferiority complex agreement between the conferences, the event title will alternate to the SEC/BIG EAST Challenge in 2012.

ESPN will provide coverage of all 12 games on ESPN, the Deuce, the U, and perhaps the Ocho. The new BIG EAST/SEC Challenge will mark an expansion of the SEC/BIG EAST Invitational, a four-year event from 2007 to 2010 that featured four matchups between the two conferences from two neutral sites.
