ACC Releases 2005-06 Basketball Schedule

by -

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- A record-setting 265 television appearances involving Atlantic Coast Conference teams headline the league's 2005-06 basketball schedule as released by Commissioner John Swofford. The schedule also boasts 166 televised games involving ACC teams and marks the second-straight year that the league has had more than 250 television appearances and the 11th-straight year with 200-or-more. Additional television selections are pending and will be announced at a later date. Highlights of the 2005-06 ACC basketball schedule are:

** ACC teams will make 147 appearances on national television networks, including 49 appearances on ESPN, 35 on Fox Sports Net and affiliates, 33 on espn2, 12 on ESPNU, 10 on CBS, seven on ABC and one on ESPN Classic.

** Fox Sports Net and affiliates will televise 21 games, including 18 Sunday afternoon and evening games on a national basis starting with the Virginia at Arizona game on November 27 ... 14 of the 18 Sunday games are conference match-ups.

** Headlining the non-conference schedule is the seventh annual ACC-Big 10 Challenge, pairing two of the nation's premier conferences in a regular season challenge series ... last year the ACC won the Challenge for the sixth-straight time winning seven of the nine games played ... also included in the regular-season schedule are 25 games against 20 non-conference opponents that earned NCAA Tournament berths a year ago.

** The ACC returns 33 starters from a year ago, including eight players who earned All-Conference recognition in 2004-05 ... North Carolina claimed the ACC’s third national title in five years and the 10th overall with a 75-70 win over Illinois ... with its 12-4 (.750) mark in the 2005 NCAA Tournament, the ACC extended its non-losing streak in NCAA Tournament play to 18 years in a row ... the ACC is the only conference to have won 10 or more NCAA Tournament games in each of the past two years and over that span has won seven more NCAA Tournament games than any other conference.

** Below is the ACC’s composite schedule for the 2005-06 season. Additional television selections are pending and will be announced at a later date.
