After months of anticipation and questions surrounding the viability of college basketball this year, the Atlantic Coast Conference schedule for the 2020-21 season is here.

The Syracuse Orange are ranked No. 23 in both the Preseason AP Top 25 and ESPN’s Way-Too-Early Polls. Syracuse is picked to finish third in the conference by both the ACC Coaches’ and Blue Ribbon Panel Preseason Polls.

In addition to being selected on the Preseason All-ACC Team, Kiara Lewis was named to the Ann Meyers Drysdale Award Watch List. The award recognizes the top NCAA Division I shooting guard. Lewis is one of 20 candidates. Tiana Mangakahia was also among 20 finalists for the Lieberman Award, which honors the best player in the country.

Questions still remain on how the COVID-19 pandemic will affect this season. How many games will a player miss due to a positive COVID test? Who will and won’t have fans in seats? Will New York State allow fans in the Dome? Will there be a vaccine ready during the season? The ACC is set to release a Medical Advisory Group report for winter sports prior to the start of the season.
