Georgetown and Indiana are on the verge of meeting for the second time in three seasons in New York.

The Hoyas and Hoosiers would meet at Madison Square Garden on Dec. 27, a source confirmed to CSNwashington. The two sides met in November of 2012 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

This would be the latest notable opponent for this upcoming season for Georgetown, which lost two starters from last season's team that finished 18-15.

The Hoyas will be one of eight teams including North Carolina, UCLA and Florida in the 2014 Battle 4 Atlantis over Thanksgiving (Nov. 26-28). They will also host Kansas at the Verizon Center on Dec. 10.

Unranked Georgetown lost in overtime to No. 1 Indiana in 2012. It's also possible Georgetown and Indiana could meet at some point during the Big East-Big 10 tipoff series which starts during the 2015-16 season

CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein first reported news of the expected matchup.
