Generally, the “Gavitt Tipoff Games [are] played on four consecutive days in the first full week of the college basketball campaign” and began in 2015 and are scheduled through 2022. Last year, the Gavitt Games were skipped due to COVID-19 scheduling issues, but Georgetown was expected to participate.
Georgetown has played in 4 games for this inter-conference matchup and had their first hiatus in 2017.
