The Eagles 2012-13 basketball schedule will look a little different when its released in about a month or so. Boston College will be swapping two non-conference games for two more ACC games as the conference moves to an 18-game schedule starting this coming season.

If the conference keeps its current three-year rotation going, BC will face Miami, Virginia Tech, Clemson, Duke and Florida State twice. Maryland, North Carolina and Virginia at home and Georgia Tech, N.C. State and Wake Forest on the road. The Eagles would also face two more of those teams a second time to complete the 18-game conference schedule.

The end product may be one of the tougher BC basketball conference schedules in many years (final 2011-12 kenpom rankings. BC finished 259).

ACC Home
7. North Carolina Tar Heels
20. Duke Blue Devils
24. Florida St. Seminoles
33. Virginia Cavaliers
47. Miami Hurricanes
76. Clemson Tigers
90. Virginia Tech Hokies
134. Maryland Terrapins
**One more ACC home game against of the below group

ACC Road
20. Duke Blue Devils
24. Florida St. Seminoles
35. N.C. State Wolfpack
47. Miami Hurricanes
76. Clemson Tigers
90. Virginia Tech Hokies
178. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
210. Wake Forest Demon Deacons
**One more ACC road game against the below group

** North Carolina (7), Virginia (33), N.C. State (35), Maryland (134), Georgia Tech (178), Wake Forest (210)

My guess is the league will pick two of the teams which BC hasn't played a home-and-home against in two seasons. That would be two of Maryland, North Carolina and VIrginia, which is not good news for the Eagles. Ideally we'd draw Georgia Tech and Wake Forest as BC's extra two games.

But if it's North Carolina and Virginia, the Eagles would then have a conference schedule that includes:

-- 8 games against each of the top four teams from last season -- North Carolina, Duke, Florida State, Virginia
-- Only a road game against the team that placed fifth (N.C. State)
-- Three of four games against the bottom 1/3 of the conference from last season -- Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech and Wake Forest -- on the road.

Could be really tough sledding for the Eagles in 2012-13.
