ACC Releases 2022-23 MBB League Slate
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The Atlantic Coast Conference announced Tuesday afternoon the league schedule for the upcoming 2022-23 men’s basketball season.
Coming off a 26-11 season that included the first Elite Eight appearance in program history, the Hurricanes will play three Big Monday games as part of the 20-game conference slate
“Each and every year, the Atlantic Coast Conference features some of the best teams and finest players in the nation. This season will be no different,” Miami head coach Jim Larrañaga said. “Everyone in our program enjoys the challenges this conference presents on a nightly basis and we will be ready for that once league play begins. In addition, we’re thrilled to have so many quality opponents coming to Coral Gables and cannot wait to see the Watsco Center rocking with excitement.”
The Hurricanes open conference action in Louisville, Ky., with a Dec. 4 matchup against Louisville, which they beat on the road for the first time ever last year.
Miami begins its ACC home slate Dec. 10 versus NC State in the second of five straight games at the Watsco Center, including three in non-conference action. Included in that stretch is a Dec. 20 outing against Virginia, the 2019 national champion.
The Hurricanes conclude the calendar year in Notre Dame, Ind., with their lone game date that is still to be determined. The matchup with Notre Dame will either be Dec. 30 or Dec. 31.
