GREENSBORO, N.C. - Two Atlantic Coast Conference games will be featured as part of the ESPN "College GameDay" schedule during the 2013-14 college basketball season, including North Carolina's regular season finale at Duke on March 8. Carolina will be appearing at an ESPN GameDay site for a record 11th time.
Entering its 10th season, ESPN's College GameDay - the eight-week Saturday morning and evening college basketball program originating from the site of ESPN's Saturday Primetime telecast - begins Saturday, Jan. 18 with a special split-site show. The first hour begins at 10 a.m. ET on ESPNU, continuing at 11 a.m. on ESPN with a one-hour evening edition leading into the Saturday Primetime game-of-the-week on ESPN.
The ACC is the only conference with two games featured among the slate of nine Saturday contests, which begins Jan. 18 and runs through March 8.
ESPN will be in Syracuse, N.Y., on Saturday, Feb. 1, for the matchup between Duke and Syracuse. The 6:30 p.m. tip marks the Orange's fourth time as a "GameDay" basketball host.
Duke will be the home team on Saturday, March 8, when ESPN will travel to Durham, N.C., for the Blue Devils' regular-season ending contest with North Carolina.
"Over the past ten years, College GameDay and the Saturday Primetime series have become a weekly showcase of the best the sport has to offer and this year's schedule promises to deliver a collection of the biggest and best games from across the country," said Nick Dawson, Senior Director, Programming & Acquisitions. "There is no sport with more passionate fans than college basketball and there is no more passionate setting than a Saturday on-campus with GameDay and Saturday Primetime on-site."

College GameDay's visit to Syracuse on February 1 is in conjunction with NBA games in the state of N.Y. during Super Bowl week and will lead into the Miami Heat at the New York Knicks NBA game at 8:30 p.m. that day.
