1. Five months from now, we meet at the Greensboro Coliseum just like the good days to stir up and enjoy some of them Barbeque Stamey – the first ACC Tournament back home since 2015.
2. A week later, there is a good chance that an ACP or two team will start on their roads to the Final Four in the same building.
3. Coaches do not love him, but fans get more ACC basketball than ever – and earlier – and the transition from 18-game schedule to 20, breaking out tonight.
4. By the end of the season, the three coaches could always be excellent at the ACC. Mike Krzyzewski The season begins at 1,132 wins, and afterwards Jim Boeheim at 1,047. Currently, seventh, Roy Williams (871) will be able to achieve a third by death Bob Knight at 902.
5. As Williams comes forward Dean Smith (877) on the all-time winning list, he will have plenty of feelings and ideas to share his mentor. Everyone has the opportunity to hear more stories about one of the big men and coaches in college basketball history.
6. Garrison Brooks He is a man who likes Smith – or anyone – to make a coach. The big man is willing to do the dirty work for the Heel Tar over his first two seasons and securing himself as the best defender of the team last year. He is a smart, intelligent man with interests over basketball and will have the opportunity to boost the role of this season.
7. Kudos likes veterans Brandon Robinson and Andrew Platek were waiting for the opportunities ahead of them this season. There would certainly be landing spots if they chose to look elsewhere, as so many players do these days.
8. Chris Mack Yes Louisville back in the mix for faster titles than anyone could imagine Jordan Nwora, Dwayne Sutton and Stephen Enoch. The series is more fun when all brand name programs are rolled out.
9. Also return to the Cardinals The main logo is in college basketball history Louisville it goes to an old school court design. Perfection was achieved.
10. ACC everyone's basketball makes us totally crazy. Example? A Virginia there are fans now Kihei Clark's signed on his chest after Hoos's national title.
11. We see Tony Bennett He will work his wizard several times in Charlottesville, but how will he replace it Kyle Guy, DeAndre Hunter and Jerome House? Smart money has found a way to get Virginia into the top four of the series again Mamadi Diakite and Jay Huff. Audiences will have the opportunity to watch this team grow exponentially between their first ACP and March match.
12. Just down the road from Bennett in Blacksburg, why Mike Young getting a chance to come home and lead Virginia Tech? One of the best in the business, Young Wofford took up a perennial power in the SoCon before receiving a call to the ACC.
13. Speaking of smaller conferences, some ACP programs do not need to play real road games for games: Carolina (by UNC Wilmington), Pitt (by Robert Morris) and State C. (with UNC Greensboro).
14. Thanks to Markell Johnson and a strong heart of it C.J Bryce, Devon Daniels and D.J. Funderburk, The State should make some noise. The Triangle is more fun when the Wolfpack It is a top 25 team.
15. Other staff who are willing to run back to the top of the league are Notre Dame, all kinds of misfortune suffered with injuries and lack of experience last season. Mike Brey It is one of the most incredible guys for the game and an extremely bright coach. His team learned some difficult lessons last season which are likely to pay off greatly.
16. Everyone will pull out of it Irish guard Rex Pflueger. Shortly after the end of last year's ACL season, his mother was diagnosed with brain cancer. She died in September, and is determined to observe her fifth season by Notre Dame.
17. There is another man who is hard to cope with Chris Lykes of Miami. It is generously listed at 5-7, Lykes can be exposed, almost 16.2 points to 10 of 20 points or more, including 27 in thriller at the Smith Center.
18. Tre Jones Duke He was one of few people who were able to stop Lykes last season, and he was forced to shoot 1-15 and keep him to 4 points. Jones surprised some people when he chose to return to his sophomore season, and will be very popular in the AC defense defense honor of the year. Its presence varies for the path Blue Devils and the series improves.
19. The new 20 game schedule means the first Carolina-Duke It moves from Wednesday to Saturday. There is always a little juice for the game in February; add a day of pregame and preplay College Day with the mixture, and it could be more fun than usual.
20. Scheduling changes also mean Forest Wake seen on Carolina a two-hour schedule for the first time since 2014 The Big Four home and town schools will play this season.
21. Death, taxes and Leonard Hamilton. Florida State Yes An average of 26 characters won three seasons last season with a change in characters, and there is no reason to believe that they will not succeed in the top seven. M.J. Walker and Trent Forrest Back. Guard five star guard Patrick Williams Charlotte will put a few dudes on posters.
22. For everything negative about Twitter, there was never a better time to become a hoop fan. There is so much conversation and insightful work before the games and during the games. Distinctive to Carolina, @FreeportKid and @dadgumboxscores the following must be done.
23. Clemson visits Chapel Hill season and the Heel Tar He will try to push his striking home victory to 60 games, a stretch of four venues: Inside Athletic Court, Woolen Gym, Lower Hall and the Smith Center, where Carolina 28-0 vs. the Tigers.
24. The ACC-Big Ten Challenge it delivers again as Carolina He meets together Ohio State, Duke travel to Michigan State, Virginia Goes Purdue and Michigan travel to Louisville. The ICC runs the 12-5-3 all-time series, t
25. We will have to see more and do non-stop discussions ACC network programming Packer and Durham, All ACC and All Access: Season with Basketball Carolina. The network has already made a number of major documentaries Duke and Virginia.
