In the Stadium report, “UMBC at Georgetown” is listed as an “Individual Matchup,” and not part of any multi-team event.
Sources: Georgetown will play 25 regular season games in 20-21 and not participate in an MTE.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) October 20, 2020
Part of the America East conference, UMBC currently has a strange schedule of back-to-back conference games, but no Georgetown on its website. GUHoyas has not been updated, and Patrick Ewing was unwilling to discuss his non-conference schedule last week at BIG EAST Media Day.

In June, John Rothstein reported the two local teams would meet, but so much has changed since then.

Last season, as part of a very fine December, Georgetown blew out UMBC at Capital One Arena. A local team and member of the America East Conference may be just what Georgetown needs to open up and prepare for a tough four game BIG EAST gauntlet in December, let alone the remaining 16 games of the conference season.
BIG EAST Media Day: Lineup of December Games Announced! https://t.co/6H4fsPS2ns— Casual Hoya (@CasualHoya) October 28, 2020
Here’s the best guess at Georgetown’s 2020-21 schedule:
- Nov. 25 UMBC @ GEORGETOWN
2020 Wooden Legacy
- WVU (home) in early December, BIG EAST-Big 12 challenge (still expected)
- One or two other non-conference games between 11/26 and 12/10?
- Dec. 11 VILLANOVA @ GEORGETOWN
- Dec. 13 CONNECTICUT @ GEORGETOWN
- Dec. 20 GEORGETOWN @ ST JOHN’S
- Dec. 23 GEORGETOWN @ SETON HALL
- 16 more BIG EAST games, starting January 1, 2021
- Syracuse (away) on a Saturday in January...
Ewing says the Hoyas haven't been a good defensive team since he's been there and wants that to change.— Bobby Bancroft (@BobbyBancroft) October 28, 2020
