As suggested earlier this month, Georgetown will not be playing in the 16 team Big East-Big Ten challenge series (aka Gavitt Games) in 2017-18.

"Hasn't been announced yet but I'm told Maryland and Georgetown won't be playing one another next year," said columnist John Feinstein on his Twitter account in early May. This past weekend, the series matchups were announced, with Maryland hosting Butler on Nov. 15. Georgetown and Villanova are the two Big East schools not in the rotation this year.

While Georgetown and Maryland could certainly schedule a series outside the Gavitt Games format, neither seems ready to do so.

Fifth year recruit Trey Dickerson is looking forward to his arrival to Georgetown this summer in an interview at SB Nation's Casual Hoya.

"I started at Iowa, which is a high-major level," he said. Then I went to South Dakota. My juco coach got a job here as an assistant and I just felt like it was the best fit at the time.

"Coach Ewing told me we have to play real up-tempo. He wants to play full- out, man-to-man and have a lot of ball screens on offense. That pretty much is where I have an advantage. He basically said he's trying to get back to the old style of play where they used to run a lot, get back to that mode...I didn't know he went to three straight Final Fours with the Hoyas and won the national championship. He's somebody who has gone through what you want to go through."

At the conclusion of the 2016-17 academic year, Georgetown has two open scholarships remaining for 2017-18, if they choose to use them.
