DURHAM, N.C. – The Duke men’s basketball team in conjunction with the Atlantic Coast Conference released its conference opponents for the next two seasons Tuesday. The matchups released today designate the 18-game home and away opponents for each of the next two seasons. Specific game dates, times and networks have not yet been determined.
The Blue Devils’ conference schedule next season features home-and-home tilts with North Carolina, Notre Dame, Syracuse and Wake Forest. Duke will welcome Boston College, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Miami and Pittsburgh into Cameron Indoor Stadium, while making road trips to Florida State, Louisville, NC State, Virginia and Virginia Tech.
In 2015-16, Duke will face Louisville, North Carolina, NC State and Wake Forest twice apiece to go along with a home slate of Florida State, Notre Dame, Syracuse, Virginia and Virginia Tech. The Blue Devils’ road trips are to Boston College, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Miami and Pittsburgh.
Next season will mark the third in which each ACC team will play an 18-game conference schedule. With Louisville joining the ACC on July 1, nine of the conference’s 15 teams will enter next season having made postseason appearances in 2013-14, including seven teams that took part in NCAA Tournament play this past year.
The ACC’s collective non-losing streak in the NCAA Tournament reached 27 years in 2013-14, by far the longest stretch in the nation. The ACC has had at least one team ranked among the Top 10 of the final Associated Press poll for 54 consecutive years.
