Hoyas Featured in 2 of Top 25 "Most Intriguing Non-League Games"

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Your Fighting Hoyas of Georgetown have one of the most grueling non-Conference schedules in the country, and two of these games have made The Dagger's Top 25 most intriguing non-league games of the 2015-16 season list:

4. Georgetown at Maryland, Nov. 17: In-state foes Maryland and Georgetown haven't scheduled one another in a regular season game since 1993, a 22-year hiatus that began amid bickering over where the next game should be played. The timing of the revival of the rivalry is fortuitous, however, with the Terps a preseason top-five team and the Hoyas one of the main threats to Villanova in the Big East.

12. Syracuse at Georgetown, Dec. 5: At a time when numerous historic rivalries have disappeared because of conference realignment, Syracuse and Georgetown have ensured theirs won't by starting a four-game series. Syracuse is hoping for a bounce-back season after a self-imposed postseason ban ended all hope of an NCAA bid last year, while Georgetown should contend in the Big East behind star D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera and talented sophomores Isaac Copeland and L.J. Peak.
