ACC Releases Conference Basketball Schedule

The ACC released its first-ever 18-game conference schedule on Wednesday, and at first glance, Carolina's slate looks pretty stout.

From the goheels.com release:

The Tar Heels play home-and-home series against seven schools - Duke, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Miami, NC State and Virginia. The other four conference games include home matchups against Virginia Tech and Wake Forest and road games at Boston College and Clemson.

The ACC portion of the schedule includes seven games in January, eight in February and three in March. The ACC Tournament is March 14-17 at the Greensboro (N.C.) Coliseum.

UNC will play the five teams home-and-home that finished 2nd through 6th in last year's standings, plus a trip to the Twilight Zone Atlanta, which is always a joy of joys, as is a trip to College Park to play the Terps. Clemson's O-for-Chapel Hill streak is safe for another year as the Heels will travel to Littlejohn for a single matchup with the Tigers.

As for television:

Fourteen (14) of Carolina's ACC games will be broadcast on ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU, four will be shown on the ACC Network and one on CBS. The February 13th game at Duke will be televised both on ESPN and the ACC Network. Games that are shown on ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU may also be seen on WatchESPN and games that are broadcast on the ACC Network may be seen on ESPN3.

The schedule will also feature five 9:00 PM starts, but only two of those will be in Chapel Hill.

A PDF of the ACC portion of the schedule can be found here. The remainder of the non-conference schedule will be released separately.
