One-hundred and thirty-five games comprise the ACC men’s basketball conference schedule. Among them, annually, are the easily-forgettable (pick most involving Boston College in recent seasons, for instance) and the easily-promoted (see the endless ESPN commercials for Duke-North Carolina).

The ACC released its schedule on Thursday. UNC will be defending a national championship, Duke will be playing, again, with a rebuilt team of future lottery picks and N.C. State will be playing for a new coach.

Those are some of the story lines entering the 2017-18 season. Others will undoubtedly emerge.
