What ACC basketball schedules can tell you about the strengths, weaknesses of your favorite team

To some extent the optional, nonconference phase of schedules reflects the changed nature of this decade’s post-expansion ACC. In the three seasons since the bloated league traded Maryland for Louisville, it sent four teams to the Final Four, won a pair of national titles (Duke in 2015 and North Carolina in 2017), had 22 NCAA entrants and posted a combined 47-20 record in NCAA play. For good measure, conference clubs reached the NIT finals in both 2015 (Miami) and 2017 (Georgia Tech).
