As the Nov. 8 matchup against Bentley looms near, Boston College is participating in ACC men's basketball media day. Alongside Jim Christian, Eli Carter and Dennis Clifford will meet the media at 9:36 AM on Wednesday.

As for the rest of the conference, the schedule is as follows:

9:00 Virginia
9:12 N.C. State
9:24 Ga. Tech
9:36 Boston College
9:48 Syracuse
10:00 Va. Tech
10:12 Wake Forest
10:24 Miami
10:36 Pittsburgh
10:48 Duke
11:00 Clemson
11:12 Louisville (Rick Pitino will not attend)
11:24 Fla. State
11:36 Notre Dame
11:48 North Carolina

One noticeable absence from the media day is Louisville Cardinals' head coach Rick Pitino. Pitino's program is currently under fire following an Outside The Lines report that members of the program indulged in the consumption of stripper-related entertainment, funded by graduate assistant coach Andre McGee. Louisville Athletics confirmed via press releasethat he would skip the events of the day due to the scandal.

The Eagles open up ACC play on Jan. 3 against the defending national champion Duke Blue Devils at Conte Forum.
