Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) basketball will begin Dec. 12 this year, about a month after the season usually starts for college players.
The 2020-21 season will run through March 6.
Each team is scheduled to play 20 games, broken down as follows:
- Four games against two primary rivals, both home and away.
- Eight games against four repeat opponents, both home and away.
- Eight single games against one opponent, four on the road and four at home.
ACC Commissioner John Swofford says all students and staff will be following safety guidelines from health officials and the league’s medical advisory group.
“Our institutions, following the guidance of our league’s Medical Advisory Group and public health officials, continue to the uphold the necessary measures to compete in a safe and responsible manner,” said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. “ACC Basketball is always met with excitement, which is a tribute to the league’s rich tradition of student-athletes, coaches and championship programs. As has been the case throughout the fall, during these unique times we will remain nimble and be as prepared as possible should adjustments be necessary.”
