Florida Gators


The island setting suggests paradise, but make no mistake about: John Thompson III and the Georgetown men's basketball team are on a business trip.


Georgetown opens the 2014-15 season Saturday at the Verizon Center against St. Francis Brooklyn. Over the next five months, 28 other regular season games will follow.


Remember how Georgetown's season started with an intriguing matchup against Florida set on a unique venue, the Aircraft Carrier U.S.S. Bataan parked off the Jacksonville coast?
