College basketball season opens with the Oregon Ducks taking on Georgetown in a national ESPN broadcast.

No. 19 Oregon Ducks vs. Georgetown Hoyas

Humphreys Community Fitness Center :: Camp Humphreys, South Korea

5:00 PT :: ESPN

Somewhat lost amongst last night's football debacle is the fact that basketball season opens tonight. Fresh off a Sweet 16 appearance, Oregon travels to South Korea to face the team that finished No. 5 in the country last year, the Georgetown Hoyas, at the Armed Forces Classic in South Korea.

While the Hoyas return the bulk of that team, they don't return the best player, guard Otto Porter, who was an NBA lottery pick. The Ducks have lost a ton from last year, including Arsalan Kazemi and E.J. Singler, but have recruited several experienced transfers in former UNLV forward Mike Moser, and guards Joseph Young (Houston) and Jason Calliste (Detroit).

The Ducks are without point guard Dominic Artis and forward Ben Carter, both of whom are serving nine-game suspensions for selling team-issued gear. Georgetown has a hole in its frontcourt as well, with Greg Whittington out after knee surgery. The will depend on a transfer of their own, former UCLA forward Josh Smith, to fill the hole in the middle.

Should be a great way to open up college hoops season. Here is your open thread.
