The ACC men's basketball teams will go to a 20-game league schedule for the 2019 season.
It was first major change that came about after the ACC Network was announced on Thursday morning by ACC Commissioner John Swofford. He said the schedule would change in '19, the year the network launches.
The league teams have played an 18-game schedule in recent years. With an increased number of conference games, the conference will have more quality content to content for the ACC Network.
The ACC Network is expected to televise 150 men's and women's basketball games during the 2019-20 season.
ACC officials said the women's basketball league schedule is expected to stay at 16 games.
