On Thursday, the ACC released their full men's basketball schedule for the 2010-11 season. Here are the highlights:
- BC opens the season at home against St. Francis NY, a team they handled easily last year 72-44.
- The Eagles will be on the ESPN family of networks nine times this season.
- This year's Commonwealth Classic between BC and UMass will be played at the Garden on December 4.
- If you're looking for a marquee non-conference opponent, Texas A&M is really it. The Aggies finished last year with a kenpom ranking of 17.
- BC will play five teams that finished 200+ in last year's final kenpom rankings -- Holy Cross (226), Bucknell (235), Yale (255), St. Francis (310) and Bryant (346)
- One-fourth of the Eagles' 16 ACC games tip at 9 PM. That seems a bit much, no?
