Women's Basketball Schedule Released
Per school press release:
CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - The Atlantic Coast Conference announced its 2020-21 women’s basketball composite league schedule on Wednesday. The conference slate begins Dec. 9 and runs through Feb. 28.
For the 2020-21 season, ACC women’s basketball will play a 20-game schedule, a two-game increase from last year.
The conference is divided into three regional divisions, with home and away games played against divisional opponents, five home games against non-divisional opponents, and five away games against non-divisional opponents.
The two additional non-divisional games were scheduled by the conference office, with most teams being assigned one home and one away game, with a few exceptions.
The games were added to the schedule from Dec. 9 to Dec. 17, which along with games on Dec. 20 and Dec. 31, allow schools to play four ACC games by the end of the calendar year.
In women’s basketball, teams can schedule 23 regular-season games and participate in one multiple-team event that includes up to four games or schedule 25 regular-season games if a team does not compete in a multiple-team event.
The five teams the Eagles will play home-and-away series against are Louisville, Syracuse, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh and NC State.
