@ACCMBB Releases Matchups for Next 2 Years
Dates, times and television networks for 2016-17 to be released in late summer
Greensboro, N.C. - The Atlantic Coast Conference has announced the 18-game conference matchups for each of its 15 men’s basketball teams for the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons.
Every other team in the ACC will visit McCamish Pavilion at least once in the next two years. Clemson and Notre Dame, Tech’s permanent home-and-away partners, as well as NC State and Syracuse, will come to Atlanta during both seasons.
Tech’s home schedule for next season (2016-17) will also include Boston College, Florida State, Louisville, North Carolina and Pittsburgh. In the 2017-18 season, Duke, Miami, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest come to Atlanta.
Along with the Tigers and the Fighting Irish, the Yellow Jackets will play NC State and Syracuse twice next season (home and away) and will face Virginia and Wake Forest twice in 2017-18.
“Even while we are in the exciting stretch run of our current season, it’s intriguing to look ahead to the next two-years which will again feature highly anticipated matchups and rivalries,” said ACC Commissioner John Swofford.
The matchups released today designate the 18-game home and away opponents for each of the next two seasons. Specific game dates, times and networks have not yet been determined.
Defending national champion Duke brought home the 16th NCAA title by a current league member last April. This season finds four ACC teams currently ranked among the nation’s top 13.
This year’s New York Life ACC Tournament is scheduled for March 8-12 at Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. Both the 2017 and 2018 tournaments will be played at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
