WASHINGTON (AP) — Maryland and Georgetown will play a four-game series starting in the 2025-26 season, the schools announced Tuesday.

The teams will alternate hosting the contests, with the Terrapins holding the first and third games on their campus in College Park, Maryland, and the Hoyas at home at Capital One Arena for the matchups in the 2026-27 and 2028-29 seasons.

The schools are about 15 miles apart but haven’t played each other in men’s basketball since November 2016, when Maryland won at Georgetown 76-75. That was their first meeting hosted by Georgetown in more than 20 years.

Georgetown went 9-23 last season, coach Ed Cooley’s first at the school; Maryland was 16-17 under Kevin Willard.

The Terrapins and Hoyas played at least once a year from 1935-1980, except for a three-year pause due to World War II. The first game in the series dates to 1911.

Maryland leads the rivalry with an all-time record of 38-27.
