The Georgetown Hoyas will be part of the 2012 Legends Classic, set to take place in Brooklyn in the fall, according to ESPN's Diamond Leung.

The November event, which will have semifinals and finals held at the Barclays Center, the future home of the New Jersey Nets, will also feature Indiana, UCLA, and Georgia, and all four announced teams will first serve as hosts for four-team regional rounds. The rest of the 16-team field will be announced later.

This will be the sixth Legends Classic, and the first held outside the Garden State. After two years in Newark and Atlantic City, the event moved to East Rutherford for 2011. Vanderbilt topped Oregon State in the final of the 2011 Legends Classic.

Georgetown and UCLA have some recent history as members of four-team fields: both squads made the 2007 Final Four as No. 2 seeds.
