Article written by the ACC:


GREENSBORO, N.C. -- All 135 Atlantic Coast Conference regular season league games and each of the 14 ACC Tournament games are slated to be televised on an ESPN network, the ACC Network, CBS Sports, or on one of the league's 10 regional cable networks in a schedule released by Commissioner John Swofford on Thursday.


Of the 149 games, 83 will be aired nationally. ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU will televise 78 contests, including all 14 ACC Tournament games while CBS Sports will televise five contests. The ACC Network will carry 52 league matchups, including the ACC Tournament in its entirety, while the Regional Sports Network will air 28 games.


The schedule also includes two Saturday Primetime Presented by DIRECTV telecasts and stops by College GameDay Covered by State Farm: Duke at Syracuse (February 1, at 6:30 p.m. ET) and North Carolina at Duke (March 8 at 9 p.m.), both on ESPN.


All conference games carried on an ESPN network will also be available on WatchESPN. Conference games carried on the ACC Network or a regional sports network will also be available on ESPN3.


The 2013-14 slate of conference games marks the inaugural ACC campaign for Notre Dame, Pittsburgh and Syracuse. The ACC's new membership further enhances a league that has historically been college basketball's strongest.


The 15 schools that will comprise the ACC in 2013-14 have made 51 trips to the Final Four and have captured 13 NCAA National Championships.  Current league members have won 22,151 games, including 532 in NCAA Tournament play and have had 681 NBA draft picks, including 221 first-round selections.


Additionally, three of the top five, four of the top 10 and five of the top 25 winningest programs in NCAA Division I basketball history currently reside in the ACC.


Three of the five active Division I coaches that have been selected for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame - Duke's Mike Krzyzewski, North Carolina's Roy Williams and Syracuse's Jim Boeheim - are in the ACC. When Louisville's Rick Pitino joins the league's coaching ranks in 2014-15, the ACC will have four of the five active Naismith Hall of Fame coaches.


Starting with the Virginia at Duke game in Durham, N.C. on January 13, ESPN will showcase eight ACC games basketball on its weekly "Big Monday" telecast. Each "Big Monday" game is set for a 7 p.m. tip and will be televised nationally by ESPN.


The 61st annual ACC Tournament on March 12-16 will continue to be televised on a variety of ESPN platforms and the ACC Network. The Championship will begin with three first-round games on Wednesday, followed by the second round, quarterfinals, semifinals and title contest in successive days.


The ACC's regional sports network (RSN) consists of Fox Sports South, Fox Sports Carolinas, Fox Sports Florida, Sun Sports, Fox Sports Indiana, Comcast Sports Net Mid-Atlantic, New England Sports Network (NESN), the YES Network, the Madison Square Garden Network (MSG) in New York and Root Sports in Pennsylvania.


A complete 2013-14 ACC basketball schedule, including non-conference games for all 15 league member institutions, will be released at a later date.
