— Georgetown pulled out of the Phil Knight Invitational and has been replaced in the tournament field by DePaul.

The move could wind up affecting who Arkansas plays on the final day of the high-profile tournament, which runs Nov. 23-26. Georgetown was on the opposite side of the Razorbacks in the eight-team Victory Bracket and was slated to face Michigan State in the opening round of the tournament, which runs Nov. 23-26.

DePaul is coached by Dave Leitao and is coming off a 9-23 season and last-place finish in the Big East.
