The Atlantic Coast Conference finalized all of the basketball conference games today (after seemingly weeks of waiting), and the 2016 basketball schedule is now in place for the Wake Forest Demon Deacons.
We will have a longer article digging into the schedule a bit either later this afternoon, or first thing in the morning, but wanted to go ahead and get the schedule out so everybody could take a look at it.

As always, the schedule is extremely difficult, but such is life as a member of the ACC in basketball. Head Coach Danny Manning is looking to turn the ship around for the Deacs after an extremely underwhelming 11-20 (2-16) 2015 season.
The Wake students finally don’t get hosed with big games towards the front of the schedule and during Winter Break. Wake will take on Duke, State, and Louisville with all the students in Winston. The home game against UNC may see less students than normal, but some should be back.
Wake plays the following teams twice: Duke, Clemson, N.C. State, and Boston College, while everybody else in the conference will be played once.
The out of conference schedule was released a few week’s back, as Rob wrote on, but the graphic is attached below for a refresher.
