ACC announces future hoops scheduling format
The Atlantic Coast Conference today concluded its fall meetings today and announced its scheduling plans for whenever Notre Dame officially joins the conference in all sports other than football.
The ACC will continue playing an 18-game basketball schedule, with each team having two "partners" with whom they are guaranteed a home-and-home series every year. Notre Dame's partners will be Boston College and Georgia Tech, meaning the Irish will play in Boston and Atlanta every season. Each team also will face every team in the conference at least once each year, with two rotating home-and-home opponents.
Every team in the league will participate in the ACC Tournament, which will be held Wednesday through Sunday of championship week.
Also, the league announced that the 12 teams with the best RPI from the previous season will participate in the annual ACC-Big Ten Challenge.
