SCHEDULE NEWS: Georgetown Reportedly Headed Back to Jamaica Classic

Wake Forest, La Salle, and Loyola Marymount expected join the Hoyas


Last week the Hoya Hoop Club teased a pre-Thanksgiving trip as part of the schedule for Patrick Ewing and the Georgetown Hoyas. The hints pointed to another visit to Jamaica and now reports are emerging that Georgetown will be a part of the Jersey Mike’s Jamaica Classic on November 18-20 in Montego Bay.

Wake Forest, La Salle, and Loyola Marymount are expected join Georgetown in the early season exempt multi-team event. Green Bay and Utah Valley are also reportedly involved, potentially in a separate bracket and may be taking part in pre-event home matchups.

The Hoyas visited Ewing’s native land in 2018 as part of the event, where they lost to Loyola Marymount and beat South Florida.

There is little other scheduling news for Patrick Ewing and Georgetown at this point, aside from the multi-year deals with and Syracuse (away, Dec. 10th) and South Carolina (home, TBD). The Hoyas were not in the Gavitt Games last year and are expected to have a Big Ten matchup early in the season. A Big 12 contest at Texas Tech on November 30th was announced earlier this month.

This is a developing story and will be updated if/when this report is confirmed.
