ACC basketball schedule for 14 teams...

 

Right now with a 12-team league and 16 game conference round-robin schedule each team has 2 partners and then 3 rotating groups of 3 teams.  Each year a team plays it's 2 partners home-away, and then there are the rotating groups of 3 teams home-away, 3 teams only home and 3 teams only away.

When the conference expands to 14-teams next year things may look very different.  I think keeping a conference round-robin is a MUST!  At the same time I don't want 20 conference games.  There is a way to keep the format already in place and only increase the conference schedule to 18 games...

Each team will now have 3 partners (keep existing rivalries and now can expand to accommodate new ones)... then five groups of 2 teams that will rotate each year.  One group will be played home-away, two groups (4 teams) just home and two groups just away.  And these groups of 2 will rotate each year.

Here is a table of the current 2 partner system that has been used for 4 years and MY idea of the best 3rd partner for each team if the ACC adopted this system (Bolded)

Boston College

Miami

Virginia Tech

Syracuse

Clemson

Georgia Tech

Florida St

Miami

Duke

North Carolina

Maryland

NCST

For this I tried to be non-bias and think what the conference and teams would want...  So I put the Carolina schools together, gave BC a northern neighbor and promoted a boarder rivalry between Maryland and Pittsburgh (even though I would rather have Maryland and Syracuse)

How do you like this schedule and my predicted 3rd annual home-away partner for each school?
