LAWRENCE, Kan. -- College basketball powerhouses Kansas and Georgetown have agreed to play annually the next four seasons with the first game scheduled for Dec. 21, 2013, at Allen Fieldhouse.

The Jayhawks also will host the Hoyas during the 2015-16 season. The teams will play at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C., during the 2014-15 and 2016-17 seasons.

Despite their pedigrees, Kansas and Georgetown have only met twice previously.

The Jayhawks beat Georgetown in the quarterfinals of the Maui Invitational last season, while the Hoyas prevailed in the Southeast Regional of the 1987 NCAA tournament.
