ESPN’s 2013 ACC Men’s College Basketball Schedule

PRINT VERSIONFILED IN: Basketball, College Basketball - Men's TAGGED: , ,

ESPN’s 2013 Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) men’s college basketball regular-season schedule will feature 106 conference games across ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU as well as the ESPN3 simulcasts of syndicated matchups. An extensive schedule of non-conference action is to be determined.

The schedule is highlighted by the return of the weekly ACC Sunday Night Basketball franchise on ESPNU and ACC action on ESPN’s Super Tuesday, Wednesday Night Hoops, Thursday Night Showcase and Saturdays.

ESPN and the ACC are beginning a new 15-year agreement for exclusive rights to every conference game. Through a sublicense arrangement with ESPN, Raycom Sports will continue its long-standing position as the syndication home of ACC content for over-the-air and regional cable network distribution. ESPN3 will simulcast every game that is offered locally via syndication.

Seth Greenberg Storylines to Follow in the ACC
ESPN’s new men’s basketball analyst Seth Greenberg, who most recently coached at Virginia Tech, provides his top storylines in the ACC this season:

  • There are backcourt questions for Duke and North Carolina with the departure of Austin Rivers and Kendall Marshall, respectively. Who will step in for them? There will be pressure on Duke’s Quinn Cook and North Carolina’s Marcus Paige this season.
  • How will NC State handle going from the hunter last year to the hunted this year? Will they be able to handle the new role as the team to beat? Last year, everyone knew where their minutes were coming from and could play through their mistakes. Will the top-rated incoming recruiting class disrupt their team chemistry?
  • Miami’s Jim Larranaga has an experienced team with purposeful depth. Few teams have two returning front court players as experienced as Miami. He has a host of backcourt options led by Shane Larkin and Durand Scott, who is a potential first round draft pick.
  • Florida State is among the winningest programs in the ACC in the last six years and will continue that winning way this season. They are for real and creating a basketball culture in Tallahassee.
  • Maryland and Virginia will be better than people expect this season. Both had really good recruiting classes that will develop as the season progresses. For Maryland, center Alex Len is going to have a break-out year and a chance to be the dominating front court presence in the conference. Virginia’s Jontel Evans will be the pulse of their team and I look for Mike Tobey to emerge as one of the better freshman in the conference.
