The Georgetown Hoyas will play the Florida Gators on a naval ship on November 9, according to a report. What other teams do the Hoyas play to start the season?

The Georgetown Hoyas will join the trend of college basketball teams playing on naval ship by playing the Florida Gators on one on November 9, according to a report by ESPN.com college basketball writer Andy Katz.

This game will be one of three games to be played on ships this fall. The Marquette Golden Eagles and Ohio St. Buckeyes will play a game off the coast of Charleston, S.C. The Syracuse Orange will play against the San Diego St. Aztecs on the retired USS Midway off the coast of San Diego.

Georgetown's schedule for the early part of the regular season seems to be fairly loaded with another game against an SEC opponent, the Tennessee Volunteers. The Hoyas will also take part in the Legends Classic which will include the Indiana Hoosiers, the UCLA Bruins and the Georgia Bulldogs. While the pairings have not been announced, Georgetown will play at least one game against Indiana or UCLA.
