Now with 100% less Syracuse!

In response to Syracuse's self-imposed one-year postseason tournament ban, the ACC has adjusted the format of this year's ACC Tournament down in Greensboro, N.C. The new 14-team tournament format will now stage just two games on Tuesday—Seed 12 vs. Seed 13 and Seed 11 vs. Seed 15—and move Seed 10 to Wednesday in a 7-10 matchup. The rest of the tournament format remains the same.

Here's the new schedule:

Tuesday, March 10
Game 1: Seed 12 vs. Seed 13, TBA
Game 2: Seed 11 vs. Seed 14, TBA

Wednesday, March 11
Game 3: Seed 8 vs. Seed 9, noon
Game 4: Seed 5 vs. Game 1 Winner, 2 p.m.
Game 5: Seed 7 vs. Seed 10, 7 p.m.
Game 6: Seed 6 vs. Game 2 Winner, 9 p.m.

Thursday, March 12
Game 7: Seed 1 vs. Game 3 Winner, noon
Game 8: Seed 4 vs. Game 4 Winner, 2 p.m.
Game 9: Seed 2 vs. Game 5 Winner, 7 p.m.
Game 10: Seed 3 vs. Game Game 6 Winner, 9 p.m.

Friday, March 13
Game 11: ACC Semifinal 1, 7 p.m.
Game 12: ACC Semifinal 2, 9 p.m.

Saturday, March 14
Game 13: ACC Final, 8:30 p.m.

Teams will slide up to replace Syracuse at the end of the regular season. Results against Syracuse will still count towards any tiebreakers for seeding purposes.
