Syracuse basketball will open its 20-game Atlantic Coast Conference schedule during the 2023-24 season by heading to Charlottesville, Va., for a conference clash against Virginia in the inaugural league contest for first-year head coach Adrian Autry.

The ACC on Tuesday night revealed its league calendar for the upcoming term. Besides kicking things off in early December versus the Cavaliers, the Orange will head to Duke in early January. The Blue Devils are deemed by many national and ACC pundits as the preseason favorite to win the conference in 2023-24.

This coming stanza, the ‘Cuse will play home-and-away series against six ACC foes, and they are Boston College, Pittsburgh, Clemson, Louisville, North Carolina and N.C. State.

Per SU Athletics, 11 of the Orange’s ACC encounters will be televised on ESPN channels, six will air on the ACC Network and three will be on The CW Network.

The Syracuse basketball ACC schedule in 2023-24 has been announced.

Former ‘Cuse guard Joe Girard III, who transferred to Clemson as a graduate student, will return to the JMA Wireless Dome on February 10. The Orange will also travel to the Tigers on March 5.

As far as early prognostications go, the latest preseason top 25 from ESPN has Duke at No. 2 nationwide, North Carolina at No. 15 and Miami at No. 18. Over at CBS Sports, the Blue Devils are No. 3, the Hurricanes, which made the 2023 Final Four, are No. 10, and the Tar Heels are No. 22.

I’ll take a deeper look at the Orange’s conference calendar and provide more in-depth thoughts in the near future. See below for the ‘Cuse ACC docket.
