On Tuesday, the ACC released the locations for every men's basketball conference game in 2013-14.
As anticipated, Boston College will play home-and-homes with its two permanent scheduling partners -- Notre Dame and Syracuse. In addition, the Eagles will face both Techs twice next season as part of the rotating home-and-home schedule partners.
In addition to hosting the four teams listed above, the Eagles will also welcome Florida State, Clemson, Duke, Maryland and Pittsburgh to Conte Forum. BC will be on the road to take on Miami, North Carolina, Wake Forest, N.C. State and Virginia.
Here is the complete schedule:
Hard to look at this home schedule and not consider it a significant upgrade over 2012-13. This year, the Eagles replace home games vs. N.C. State, Miami, North Carolina, Wake Forest and Virginia with dates against Syracuse, Notre Dame and Pittsburgh -- all three NCAA Tournament teams from a season ago. BC also hosts the Terrapins in the last ever ACC regular season matchup between the two programs. I'll miss all those conference Ws.
Hopefully the students respond to the improved home slate and show up at Conte next season.
The road schedule is nothing to sneeze at, either. In addition to road games at Syracuse and Notre Dame, BC travels to the defending ACC champion Miami Hurricanes, North Carolina, N.C. State and Virginia.
Your thoughts? Too easy? Just about right? Or postseason tournament berth prohibitive?
