Durham, N.C. — The ACC announced the conference opponents for the 2013-14 women’s basketball season on Wednesday. Game dates, times and television designation will be announced by the league office at a later date.
Duke will feature home-and-home matchups with Notre Dame and North Carolina. The Blue Devils will welcome Wake Forest, N.C.

Duke enters the 2013-14 campaign with an ACC-record 39-game winning streak at home against ACC opponents and is coming off a perfect 16-0 in Cameron Indoor Stadium a year ago. It marked only the fourth undefeated home season in Blue Devil history.
Duke will travel to Florida State, Miami, Georgia Tech, Clemson, Syracuse and Virginia Tech.
The ACC will be moving back to a 16-game league regular season schedule in 2013-14, following a 17-1 mark by the Blue Devils this past year. Duke has captured the ACC regular season title in each of the past four straight years.
Duke, who is coming off a 33-3 campaign this past season, will return five starters in 2013-14, including 93.7 percent of its scoring. The Blue Devils will welcome back All-America selections Chelsea Gray and Elizabeth Williams along with All-ACC performers Tricia Liston and Haley Peters. Freshman All-America and ACC Tournament MVP Alexis Jones is the final returning starter for Duke. A total of 11 letterwinners will return to the squad next season.
