On Wednesday, the ACC released the schedule for women's basketball league play.

Three ACC teams from last season's AP Top 25 will come to the Carrier Dome this season. That includes No. 5 Duke, No. 12 Maryland and No. 25 Florida State. SU's other home games are against Georgia Tech, Clemson, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Pittsburgh.

Notable away games are against No. 12 Maryland on Jan. 16, No. 13 North Carolina on Jan. 30 and second-ranked Notre Dame on Feb. 9. The Orange will take on Maryland and Pittsburgh twice this season.

Syracuse begins conference play on the road at N.C. State on Jan. 5. The Orange will return home to face fifth-ranked Duke in SU's first ACC home game. The game is at 7 p.m. on Jan. 9.

The Orange finished last season with a 24-8 record and ranked 22nd in the nation. SU lost to Creighton in the Round of 64 of the NCAA Tournament.

SU has not yet released the entire non-conference schedule.

Syracuse's annual Senior Day celebration is on Sunday, Feb. 23 against the Pittsburgh Panthers.

The Greensboro Coliseum in Greenboro, N.C. will host the ACC Tournament, which takes place from March 5th to March 9th.
