Circle These Dates

  • 3/7 at Towson: Georgetown’s first month of the season looks to be easy on paper with their toughest opponents being UMBC and Mount St. Mary’s. And then March begins with a road matchup against Towson. It was only a two-goal game last year entering the fourth quarter, but the Tigers outscored the Hoyas 6-2 en route to a six-goal victory with Brendan Sunday recording nine points.
  • 3/14 at North Carolina: The month continues the following week as the Hoyas take on North Carolina. They previously met in 1952, which was before UNC’s varsity program was halted for a period of time. Georgetown and North Carolina are considering this their first ever meeting, and it should be a good one. The Hoyas will need to find a way to stop Chris Gray and the young Tar Heel offense.
  • 3/28 vs. Denver: Georgetown has never defeated Denver in the regular season. But the Hoyas have come out on top against the Pioneers in the past two Big East Championship games, with the last one coming at Peter Barton Stadium. Denver looks to bounce back after missing out on the NCAA Tournament.
  • 4/4 vs. Providence: The Hoyas have only lost twice to the Friars in program history in 1987 and 2017. They nearly lost twice to Providence last year alone. Georgetown used a big third quarter run to push themselves past the Friars in the regular season before edging Providence by a goal in the Big East semifinals via a four-goal run to end the game.
  • 4/11 at Villanova: The third team that will appear to be a contender in the Big East are the Wildcats. They’ve always seemed to be in the hunt, but haven’t been able to get to the conference title game since 2014. Villanova brings back key players on offense such as Connor Kirst and Keegan Khan that should give the Hoya defense some challenges.
