Miami Hurricanes basketball releases 2014-15 ACC schedule
AUG 27, 2014 4:08p ET
The University of Miami men's basketball team will open this season's Atlantic Coast Conference schedule against reigning league champion Virginia on Jan. 3, as announced Wednesday.
In February, Miami will play five of its nine games at home. Its first contest, however, will be at Florida State (Feb. 1).
This season marks the first time the ACC is going with a 12-year schedule rotation. Teams that are not partners play five years at home and five years on the road only, as well as two years both at home and on the road. For just the third time each ACC team will play an 18-game conference schedule with the introduction of the Cardinals to the league this past July.
Nine of the 15 conference teams made postseason appearances in 2013-14, including seven in the NCAA Tournament. While the Hurricanes did not receive a playoff invitation last season, they return three players from a 17-16 team and will have no seniors in 2014-15. Three transfers -- Sheldon McClellan, Angel Rodriguez and Joe Thomas -- are eligible to play. Redshirt freshman guard Deandre Burnett is available after missing last season with an injury.
Miami swept four games in Spain this month as part of an overseas tour.
"The ACC in my mind is the best basketball conference in the country. Every night you are playing against a Top 20 or Top 10 team in the country," head coach Jim Larranaga said in a statement. "Whether you are at home or on the road, you had better be at your best, or you will be defeated."
