2010-11 Hoops Schedule Released

New, comments

Here it is. (Here's a direct link to the team-by-team schedules.)

Notes...

-- NC State opens the season at the RBC Center on November 12th against Tennessee Tech before hitting the road for the Charleston Classic.

-- No conference game in December this year--our first ACC game isn't until January 8th.  No random OOC game in the middle of league play, either.

-- We'll be on the ESPN family of networks ten times. 

-- Six non-conference games will be televised (two @ Charleston, Wisconsin, Syracuse, Arizona, San Diego).  My memory may be off, but that seems like more than we typically get.

-- As far as marquee OOC home games go, we're out of luck.  There's Arizona and Arizona.  The good stuff happens either on the road or in Charleston.

-- Breaking down conference play:

x2: Wake Forest, Duke, North Carolina, Florida State, Clemson
Home-only: Miami, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech
Road-only: Maryland, Boston College, Virginia

-- Beginning conference play with Wake Forest and road trips to BC and FSU gives us a shot at a good start, which would probably be a good idea.  The brutal stretch begins in late January: at UNC, vs. VT, at Duke back-to-back-to-back.  And that stretch is sandwiched by a pair of road games.  Four road trips in five games, with the heavy-hitters in the middle.  Fun times.
