Georgetown faces Texas in 2012 Jimmy V Classic

From, the day late news pile: Georgetown has an official non-conference game on their 2012-13 calendar.

Nope, not against Terps, but Texas.

The Hoyas and Longhorns will participate in a doubleheader for the 2012 Jimmy V Classic on Tuesday, December 4 at Madison Square Garden (do I need to add MSG is in New York City?).
Georgetown will play Texas in the first game scheduled for 7 p.m followed by a matchup between Connecticut and North Carolina State.

Per Georgetown's athletic department, this will be only the second meeting all-time between the Hoyas and the Longhorns, who last met during the 1971-72 season, a 78-70 GU loss.

Georgetown last played in the Jimmy V Classic during the 2009-10 season, beating eventual NCAA Tournament finalist Butler, 72-67.

The Hoyas finished last season with a 24-9 overall record and made the NCAA Tournament for a third-straight season before losing to the Wolfpack in the round of 32.

Texas finished the 2011-12 season with a 20-14 overall record and lost to Cincinnati in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
