Georgetown last played in the Jimmy V Classic in 2009, when it defeated Butler 72-65. Butler went on the make the Final Four that season, which I suppose bodes very well for the Longhorns.
This will be the second trip for the Hoyas to New York in the out of conference schedule. In November, Georgetown will head to Brooklyn to play in The Legends Classic in a field that includes Indiana, UCLA and Georgia.
