As a part of new inter-conference partnership, Oklahoma State will play host to the Georgetown Hoyas inside Gallagher-Iba Arena this upcoming December, the school announced on Thursday.

The Big 12 and the Big East have agreed to a four-year deal that will see 10 matchups between teams from each league, all scheduled during the month of December.

The Cowboys and the Hoyas have faced each other just once during the two schools’ storied histories when the two met up in a consolation game in the Maui Invitational in 2016. The Cowboys earned the 97-70 win behind 20 points from Jeffrey Carroll and 13 points and six assists from Jawun Evans.

Last year’s Georgetown squad finished 19-14 in third place in the Big East during Patrick Ewing’s second year at his alma mater. OSU is 41-37 (.526) all-time against Big East schools, but haven’t hosted one since Marquette came to Stillwater all the way back in 1992.
