Andy Katz reporting this morning that conversations with 'multiple sources' have said it's likely Kentucky will travel to Washington D.C. to face Georgetown in next season's Big East-SEC Challenge game. Interesting matchup, and one I have chit-chatted with several other UK reporters about during the postseason. Seemed like the type of game they'd like to set up.
Noel's recruitment and ultimate choice of UK certainly make the match up all the more intriguing.
Also a tough early match up for a young UK team as I'm pretty sure Georgetown will return the majority of their roster.
Very interesting. Would be a great matchup.
I'd really like this game, would feel really fresh to me.
If this comes to pass UK's non-conference slate would include: vs. Maryland (Brooklyn), vs. Duke (Atlanta), at Georgetown, at Louisville
And not the downfall of civilization as we know it??
I forget, does Georgetown play at a campus arena or do they always play at the same place as the Wizards? Or a little of both? Based on past scheduling of these games I would think it is almost 100% guaranteed to take place in the NBA arena.
Imagine if we had UNC and Indiana...That's rough...
That's a good line up.
On a related note, the ACC/Big 10 games were announced today:
Tuesday, Nov 27:
North Carolina at Indiana
NC State at Michigan
Minnesota at Florida State
Maryland at Northwestern
Iowa at Virginia Tech
Nebraska at Wake Forest
Wednesday, Nov 28:
Ohio State at Duke
Virginia at Wisconsin
Michigan State at Miami
Purdue at Clemson
Georgia Tech at Illinois
Boston College at Penn State
A few good ones in there, can't wait!

Wow! That Big Ten vs ACC match up will provide at least 4 games that wii have top ten competition going at each other. UNC vs IU may head up the billing, but ESPN will get richer with those games. I just wish the SEC was strong enough to warrant some top games of the season as the BT vs ACC does. Perhaps with the addition of A&M and Missouri, we're headed that way?
That's one of the places I mentioned in the other thread about scheduling. DC area is loaded with talent. Good to have some presence there. Also, would give a kid like Troy Williams a chance to play another game close to friends and family if he chooses UK.

UNC/IU and a Duke/Ohio State rematch. Not bad.
Wonder why it wasn't paired as Duke-IU, UNC-Ohio State? Kinda weird to do the same matchup you had in last year's Challenge.
Isn't Troy Williams 2013 & this G'Town game 2012?
Not sure. Think Duke-IU and UNC-IU have both already matched up.
Really feeling the UK/GTown matchup. Will be the first since '84 if I'm not mistaken.
Think they alternate years because the ACC Big 10 is home and home.
