Georgetown Begins Championship Round Play in Maui Invitational Against Kansas

The Maui Invitational. It's where Connecticut began their championship season last year with a win over Kentucky in the tournament final. This season, Georgetown will be the Big East representative in the tournament. We're not counting on the same results as last year.

Georgetown has the misfortune of drawing Kansas in the first game of the championship round. As the game is all the way out in Hawaii, the Eastern start time will be midnight on November 21 on ESPN2. The Hoyas will play their next game on November 22 against the winner/loser in the UCLA-Chaminade matchup. Even if Georgetown can get by Kansas, they'd still have to beat UCLA and Duke or Memphis to win.

The tournament expanded for this year with a new format, in a sense. There will be four teams that will stay on the mainland that will play the teams which actually get to go out to Maui. Then, the four teams that will remain on the mainland will play each other in Murfreesboro, Tennessee (refer to the bracket to straighten this mess out).

Before Georgetown travels to Hawaii, they will first take on UNC Greensboro at the Verizon Center on November 14.

Here are the other Championship Round games (all times Eastern):

Michigan vs. Memphis, November 21, 3:00 p.m., ESPN2

Tennessee vs. Duke, November 21, 5:30 p.m., ESPN2

UCLA vs. Chaminade, November 21, 9:30 p.m., ESPNU
