ATLANTA – The Atlantic Coast Conference release the games-only portion of the league’s women’s basketball schedules for the 2005-06 and 2006-07 seasons Wednesday.
For the next two seasons, every ACC women’s basketball team will play a 14-game conference schedule that includes three primary partners and eight rotating partners. Every team will play its primary partners ones at home and one on the road for a total of six games, each of the next two seasons. The remaining eight conference games will feature one meeting, for a total of four home and four road contests, against each school’s rotating partners.
For the next two years, the Yellow Jackets’ primary partners will be Clemson, Miami and North Carolina. Georgia Tech will play each of these teams twice in the next two seasons, both home and away. During the 2005-06 season, Georgia Tech will host games against rotating partners Virginia Tech, Florida State, Wake Forest and Duke while traveling to NC State, Maryland, Virginia and Boston College. The following season, the Jackets will then travel to Virginia Tech, Florida State, Wake Forest and Duke and then host the Wolfpack, Terrapins, Cavaliers and Eagles.
The model released by the ACC ensures that every institution will face all conference opponents at least once during the next two seasons, and within a two-year cycle, every student-athlete would travel to every conference campus at least once. The 14-game schedule also allows flexibility for each team to schedule non-conference intersectional games as well as maintaining national rivalries.
