GREENSBORO, N.C. – ESPN has announced its coverage of the 2012 ACC Men’s Lacrosse season, and a record 19 games – including all nine conference matchups – will be broadcast on ESPN platforms.
The 2011 ESPN schedule opens on Feb. 25 with Stony Brook visiting Virginia. The slate is highlighted by ten nonconference games, including eight against 2011 NCAA Tournament participants.
Conference play begins on March 3, with Duke taking on Maryland in a national semifinal rematch from a year ago. Virginia and Maryland, who played in the national title game last year, face off on March 31 on ESPNU.
The 19-game schedule breaks the previous mark of 16 set last year. The entirety of the ACC Men’s Lacrosse Championship, held in Charlottesville, Va., on April 20-22, will be on national television for the first time in conference history.
In addition to the events announced on Monday, other games may be carried by the ACC Digital Network and by the regional cable partners of various ACC institutions. A complete listing of those games will be announced at a later date.
The 2012 season gets started on Saturday, Feb. 11, with Duke and North Carolina in action. ACC teams have won two straight national titles and four of the last nine.
