Record 189 ACC Basketball Games To Be Televised Nationally

K gives his UAE counterpart some advice: It's OK to yell at the refs.
An all-time high 189 national television appearances highlight the 2011-12 ACC  basketball schedule including some games you won’t want to miss.

At the top of the list for some, and at the very bottom for others, Duke coach Mike Krzyghj5ski's first attempt at breaking Bob Knight's Division I men's basketball career wins record is likely to take place against Michigan State in New York City.

Krzth7wski has 900 wins and needs three more to pass his mentor, Knight, as Division I's winningest coach. Duke opens with games against Belmont and Presbyterian before meeting Michigan State on Nov. 15 in an event called the "Champions Classic."

Ol Roy’s Tar Heels which are expected to be the nation's No. 1 team when the preseason polls come out, also has a high-profile game scheduled against Michigan State in the Tar Heels' opener. The teams will meet Nov. 11 on the deck of the U.S.S. Carl Vinson in San Diego.

In the first year of a new 12-year agreement with ESPN, all of the league’s conference games schedule will be carried by either ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN3.com, the ACC Network or the ACC Regional Sports Networks (RSN). All conference games carried by the ACC Network, or the Regional Sports Network (RSN), will also be broadcast live nationally on ESPN3.com, as will selected games by ESPN.

The ACC Network, which under the previous TV agreement, syndicated games only within the ACC footprint, will now syndicate ACC games through-out the country.

Not to worry old school ACC fans, Raycom Sports will continue its long-standing position as the syndication home of ACC content in the ACC market and beyond. As a result, every regular-season intra-conference game and the entire conference tournament will be produced and distributed via ESPN and Raycom Sports.
