The Georgetown men’s basketball program remains in a pause due to covid related issues.
The Big East announced on Wednesday morning that the Hoyas game at Xavier on Tuesday Jan. 26 has been postponed. This will be the fourth straight game postponed for Georgetown (3-8, 1-5) and as with the previous three, no makeup date has been announced.

What’s interesting about this most recent Big East announcement is that Xavier is also on a covid pause of their own. The Musketeers last played on Jan. 10 before also seeing their last three games postponed.
Georgetown postpones another game due to positive test within the program. This time Xavier on Tuesday. This is the fourth straight game. #hoyas— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) January 20, 2021
Just as a frame of reference for how long this could last, No. 3 Villanova took the court last night after a covid related pause in the Wildcats program. The Wildcats went nearly a month - Dec. 23 to Jan. 19 - in between games.
The Hoyas last played on Jan. 9 at Syracuse and are currently scheduled to host Providence on Jan. 30.
Stay tuned as we will update this as new information becomes available.
