Boasting 16 Big East titles and seven straight postseason appearances, the Georgetown Hoyas streak into the season hoping to continue their extended stay among NCAA elites. This year’s roster welcomes a supergroup of freshman talent to hone its game under the leadership of Head Coach John Thompson III, who boasts an impressive 139–62 record at Georgetown and a 203–0 record in neighborhood games of H.O.R.S.E. In the first game of the Maui Invitational, the Hoyas battle the UNC–Greensboro Spartans for a chance at slam-dunking a victory at the prestigious Hawaiian tournament, and a post-Thanksgiving match against the IUPUI Jaguars challenges the team to rally after a weekend running windsprints through Black Friday lines.
