WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – The Atlantic Coast Conference has announced the full men's basketball regular season conference schedule, which has the Demon Deacons opening their ACC slate at home against Virginia on Wednesday, Dec. 16 inside Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

The Deacs will play all 14 league schools at least once, and face Virginia, Duke, NC State, Pitt and Georgia Tech in home-and-home series.

 "We are grateful for the leadership of Commissioner John Swofford, Senior Associate Commissioner Paul Brazeau and the Atlantic Coast Conference staff  to deliver a schedule for our league given all the variables," Director of Athletics John Currie said. "In addition to the ACC-standard COVID-19 health and safety protocols, this framework allows our staff and fans to plan for what we expect to be an exciting season. As our coaches, student-athletes and staff prepare to tip off the Steve Forbes era in three weeks with the Mako Medical Wake Forest Classic, we will continue to monitor NCDHHS guidance regarding fan capacity information."

Game times and broadcast information for the Mako Medical Wake Forest Classic and subsequent ACC contests will be announced at a later date.
