The ACC continued to announce its basketball schedule in drips and drabs with some of them changing yet again.
After dates for league games were announced on an ACC Network show last Thursday night, the league, without publicizing the decision, allowed schools to post starting times for most of those games on their individual websites this week.
The Duke-North Carolina games, often the most viewed regular-season college basketball games, have 6 p.m. starting times for their games Feb. 8 at Chapel Hill and March 7 at Durham, according to schedule pages at GoDuke.com and GoHeels.com. ESPN will televise the games.
But while starting times have been added to let fans interested in attending ACC games begin their planning, two games no longer have a firm date assigned to them.
Duke’s ACC opener at Virginia Tech was originally announced for Dec. 6; North Carolina’s game at Virginia was set for Dec. 7.
Now, according to the schools’ websites, those games will be played either Dec. 6 or 7. The ACC has informed the schools the date will be finalized at a later date. The ACC Network is listed as the television outlet for both games.
The ACC Network will also show the N.C. State at Wake Forest game Dec. 7, but no tip time has been announced.
In addition to not yet knowing the date for the game at Virginia Tech, Duke has three other games where a time has not been finalized.
Duke’s Jan. 4 game at Miami will be at either 3 or 8 p.m.
Both the Feb. 1 game at Syracuse and the Feb. 29 game at Virginia will start at 4, 6 or 8 p.m. Those are Saturdays and the location for ESPN’s traveling College GameDay show could impact when those games are played.
UNC’s home ACC games Feb. 1 against Boston College and Feb. 15 with Virginia, Feb. 22 at Louisville and Feb. 29 at Syracuse are all on hold. The first three are listed as starting at either 6 p.m. or 8 p.m. The game at Syracuse is listed as 4, 6 or 8 p.m.
The Boston College-UNC game will be shown on the ACC Network.
UNC’s games with Virginia, Louisville and Syracuse will be on either ESPN or ESPN2, with College GameDay possibly impacting them.
For N.C. State, the lone ACC game without an announced starting time is the Dec. 7 game at Wake Forest.
