To tweet this release:

ESPN and the Atlantic Coast Conference have announced its men’s basketball schedule for the 2011 conference season. Games will appear on several ESPN platforms, including ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU with providing a simulcast of every ESPN and ESPN2 telecast. Ten conference games will be seen on ESPNU with the remainder on ESPN or ESPN2.

Conference action will tip off Saturday, Jan. 8, at 3 p.m. ET on ESPN2 with Florida State at Virginia Tech. The ACC has at least two games per week for eight weeks, concluding Saturday, March 2, at noon on ESPN or ESPN2 with Virginia Tech at Clemson. The Duke at Virginia Tech game on Saturday, Feb. 26, at 9 p.m. on ESPN is part of College GameDay Driven by State Farm and Saturday Primetime Presented by DIRECTV.

All 12 ACC teams will be seen in the conference package for a total of 66 appearances through 33 regular-season games. Defending National Champion Duke has a league-leading 10 appearances, followed by NIT participant Virginia Tech with eight. North Carolina, NC State, Clemson, all with 2010 postseason berths, stand with six appearances each, along with Boston College.

Six of the telecasts showcase matchups between six ACC teams coming off NCAA Championship berths last season – Duke, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Maryland and Wake Forest (Duke at Florida State, Jan. 8; Wake Forest at Georgia Tech, Jan. 19; Duke at Wake Forest, Jan. 22; Duke at Maryland, Feb. 2; Florida State at Georgia Tech, Feb. 10; Clemson at Duke, March 2).

Three ACC teams are ranked in senior college basketball writer Andy Katz’s early men’s preseason top 25 poll: No. 1 Duke, No. 6 North Carolina and No. 22 Virginia Tech.

A part of the Internal Communications team at ESPN, I began with the network in 2010 as part of the College Sports PR team. Always an avid sports fan and not an athlete – I grew up a huge fan of the Hartford Whalers, while also watching my brother compete at different levels. I became the manager of several high school sports teams and continued that hobby into college. While at Quinnipiac, I worked in the Sports Information Department, which led me to a summer internship at the New Haven Ravens, a AA baseball team, and an eventual job with the Athletic Communications Department at the University of Connecticut. After my five-year stint at Connecticut, I spent six years as Director of Communications at the BIG EAST Conference in Providence, R.I. before joining ESPN.
