NCAA Basketball: Duke at N.C. State Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

NC State’s 2020-21 basketball schedule is here, finally, just barely two weeks from the start of the season. The Wolfpack has seven non-conference games set and will be one of the teams with a heavier early-season league slate, with three ACC games scheduled before January.

It was omitted from the below graphic but NC State is indeed playing UConn this year, as had been previously discussed, according to Kevin Keatts himself. That game will be on Dec. 5th, and is expected to be played on a neutral floor.

The Wolfpack opens conference play at Louisville on Dec. 16 and also will host UNC three days before Christmas, which is the earliest those two schools have met in a season since 1979.

During the middle portion of this slate, NC State has an eight-game stretch during which it plays Virginia twice, Syracuse twice, UNC once, and Duke once. That’ll be tough, though the finish to the regular season provides opportunities, with a pair of games against Pitt plus games against Wake, Notre Dame, and Virginia Tech.

Here’s the ACC’s full schedule release.
