Georgetown is a member of the Big East Conference ... Legends Classic first round opponent ... Duquesne leads the series 10-3 ... first meeting since No. 6 (AP) Georgetown defeated DU 88-86 at Lakeland, Fla. on Dec. 28, 1995 ... Boubacar Aw's put back with 30 seconds left was the game winner ... DU's Mike James missed a potential game-tying 15-footer with :03 left ... Duquesne's Tom Pipkins scored a game-high 30 points ... Othella Harrington led Georgetown with 25 ... it will be DU's first appearance at Georgetown since a 68-56 win on Dec. 11, 1962 ... finished 24-9 in 2012 with a roster that featured 10 freshmen and sophomores ... led the nation in 3-point defense (.279) ... was 13th in field goal defense (.387) and 16th in scoring defense (59.4 ppg.) ... went 15-1 at home ... third-year Hoyas assistant Kenya Hunter starred at guard for the Dukes from 1993-96 ... he also assisted on Darelle Porter's Dukes staff in 1998-99 and 1999-00.

• Duquesne is opening with back-to-back road games for the first time since 1990-91 (at Detroit and at Rice).
Sean Johnson (909 points), needs 91 to become DU's 37th 1,000-point scorer.

• True freshman Derrick Colter, who started at point guard, scored 17 points ... the 17 points were the most by a freshman in a season opener since Scott Grote had 23 against Youngstown State on Nov. 13, 2006.

• Seniors Sean Johnson (3-of-13, 9 points) and Andre Marhold (1-of-4, 4 points) were a combined 4-of-17 from the field.
• With his career-high 5 blocks, Andre Marhold moved into the seventh spot on DU's career blocked shot list with 62 ... he needs one to pass No. 6 Effrem Whitehead (63 from 1991-94).
• Ten Dukes saw action in the game's first 8:30 ... DU's first five field goals came from five different players.
