College Basketball: 2013-14 ACC Preview

The ACC hasn’t been able to brag No. 1 conference status for a while. Last season it was the Big Ten. Before that, the Big East had its run.

Perhaps expansion diluted the ACC product a bit in past years. Until last season, Miami didn’t offer much. Boston College’s best days were largely in the Big East. And Virginia Tech can only dream of the days it was the first team in the NIT.

Even before adding the 2013 national champion, the ACC could reclaim its spot as the nation’s premier basketball conference.

In 2013-14, the ACC adds another bona fide basketball powerhouse in Syracuse, plus consistent Big East programs Pittsburgh and Notre Dame to expand to 15 teams. And that’s before Louisville takes the spot of Big Ten-bound Maryland in 2014.
