Thursday served as a reveal type of day for the Atlantic Coast Conference, as they released the future conference opponents for each women's basketball program over the next two seasons.

The conference will look a bit different starting in 2024-2025, as three teams (Cal, SMU and Stanford) are all set to join the ACC. With their additions comes changes to how scheduling works, as here are some important details to know about:

The 18-game schedule for the 2024-25 and 2025-26 seasons feature:

  • Each school has an assigned travel partner that will feature a home-and-away series.
  • The home and away matchups will flip annually.
  • Current ACC membership travels to the Pacific Time Zone once every two seasons.
  • The top 15 teams in the final league standings will play in the 2025 Ally ACC Women’s Basketball Tournament, played from March 5-9 at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Now that you have that information, here are the conference opponents for Courtney Banghart and the UNC women's basketball program over the next two seasons.

2024-25
Home: Duke, Florida State, Georgia Tech, NC State, Wake Forest, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Notre Dame, Boston College
Away: Duke, Cal, Stanford, SMU, Pitt, Miami, Clemson, Louisville, Syracuse

2025-26
Home: Duke, Cal, Stanford, SMU, Pitt, Miami, Clemson, Louisville, Syracuse
Away: Duke, Florida State, Georgia Tech, NC State, Wake Forest, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Notre Dame, Boston College

The Tar Heels will have to travel to the west coast this upcoming season, as they'll visit each of the conference's new teams during the 2024-2025 season. Fortunately, those teams will return the favor the following year, as North Carolina won't have to make the long trip a year later.

Unlike the men, the women will only play one program twice a season, and of course, it's rival Duke. Every other ACC team will see the Tar Heels once (and vice versa).

Yes, we haven't wrapped up the 2023-2024 season yet, but hey, it's never too early to look ahead a bit at some future scheduling!
