As Kansas gets ready for the start of the 2012-13 basketball season with Late Night in the Phog on Friday, KU officials are working on the following year's non-conference schedule.

And it appears the Georgetown Hoyas will be visiting Lawrence.

As reported by CasualHoya.com, the Jayhawks and Hoyas are negotiating a two-game series beginning in 2013-14 at Allen Fieldhouse, with the second game coming in the 2014-15 season in Washington, D.C at the Hoyas' home, the Verizon Center.

Kansas and Georgetown met last season in the First Round of the Maui Invitation with KU winning 67-63 en route to an appearance in the tournament's title game and eventual loss to Duke. 

Bill Self and his team are scheduled to face Duke again in 2013 in the Champions Classic, a four-team annual event in which last season Kansas went down in defeat to eventual national champion, Kentucky. 

Next month, for the third time in five years, the Champions Classic will feature an Izzo-Self matchup.

Other notable non-conference opponents of the Jayhawks this season include Ohio State, Temple, and three Pac-12 teams in Washington State, Colorado and Oregon State.
