The Georgetown men's basketball team will open the upcoming season Nov. 12 at Old Dominion and begin its home schedule three days later when Tulane visits Verizon Center, the school announced Friday.

Georgetown's nonconference schedule is highlighted by road games against Missouri (Nov. 30), Temple (Dec. 9) and Memphis (Dec. 23). The Hoyas are also set to participate in the Charleston (S.C.)
