— Coming off a year in which eight ACC teams made the women’s NCAA tournament, the expectations are again high for the conference. On Tuesday, the conference opponents and locations for the league were announced, offering many intriguing tilts.

Highlighting the slate will be Duke visiting national runner-up Note Dame as well as hosting ACC newcomer Louisville. Duke, who will return senior Elizabeth Williams and junior Alexis Jones, will also play UNC and Wake Forest in home-and-home series’ as primary partners.

North Carolina, who lost stand-out freshman Diamond DeShields to a transfer after one year, will host the Irish and make trips to Louisville and Syracuse. The Tar Heels are coming off an elite eight trip a year ago and will get head coach Sylvia Hatchell back on the bench after sitting out last season with health concerns.

UNC and tournament surprise NC State will also play as primary partners.

Wes Moore’s Wolfpack turned heads last year by earning a No. 5 seed in the NCAA tournament in the coach’s first year on the bench. They will get a chance to showcase themselves again this season with home games against both Duke and Notre Dame. They also visit Florida State, Syracuse, Georgia Tech and Louisville – all of whom made the field of 64 last season.

League-wide, every team will play all 14 other opponents – six at home, six away and two primary partners in home-and-home’s.

Long-standing rivalries will be honored, and new conference rivalries will be developed with a schedule that is certain to entertain our fans and challenge our teams,” said Nora Lynn Finch, Senior Associate Commissioner for Women’s Basketball.

    It doesn't matter. Duke never beats the top level teams (U Con. or N. Dame). That is the reason women't basketball can't get a hold. Only a very few teams seriously have a chance to win the tournament.
