Georgetown, UConn To Begin Series 10/26/14

Following various media reports which surfaced Friday, head coach John Thompson III confirmed that Georgetown and the University of Connecticut will play a home and home series beginning in the 2015-16 season.

Georgetown will travel to the XL (Hartford Civic) Center in the 2015-16 season, followed by a return trip to the Huskies to Verizon Center in the 2016-17 season. Georgetown has a 35-29 lead in a series which began in 1958 but was better known during UConn's participation in the Big East from 1979 through 2013.

By next season, Georgetown will have games against all the original Big East schools except one: Boston College, whose program has fallen on hard times in the ACC and has largely been shunned by other Big East schools for its hasty exit from the conference in 2005.

Big East Media Day 10/23/14
