The 2012–13 Georgetown Hoyas men's basketball team represents Georgetown University in the 2012–13 college basketball basketball season. They are led by John Thompson III and play their home games at the Verizon Center. They are a member of the Big East Conference. Prior to the January 12 game at St. John's, the team's second leading scorer, Greg Whittington, was suspended indefinitely for academic issues.[2] With a 61–39 win over their rival Syracuse Orange on March 9, 2013, the team clinched their 10th Big East Regular Season Championship.[3] Georgetown lost to 15-seed and tournament newcomer Florida Gulf Coast University 78-68 in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The team was ranked No. 8 in the final Associated Press Poll of the season and No. 17 in the postseason Coaches' Poll.

This was Georgetown‍ '​s last season as a member of the original Big East Conference. It had been a founding member of the conference in the 1979-80 season and had remained a member for 34 seasons, but the conference‍ '​s increasingly unstable membership and uncertain future and what Georgetown and the conference‍ '​s other basketball-only members believed to be its focus on college football at the expense of the interests of its basketball programs led Georgetown and six other Big East members (DePaul, Marquette, Providence, Seton Hall, St. John's, and Villanova) to leave the conference after the end of the 2012-13 season. In 2013, they joined Butler, Creighton, and Xavier in forming a new Big East Conference for the 2013–14 season. The original Big East Conference then added new members of its own and renamed itself the American Athletic Conference for the 2013-14 season.

The final regular-season meeting of Georgetown and Syracuse as Big East rivals on March 9, 2013, set an attendance record at the Verizon Center of 20,972.[4]
