SOUTH BEND – Notre Dame will play its first Atlantic Coast Conference basketball game at home against Duke on Jan. 4.
The game will pit Irish coach Mike Brey against his former boss, Mike Krzyzewski, who was critical of the ACC’s decision to allow Notre Dame to join the league while staying independent in football. Brey was an assistant under Krzyzewski from 1987-95, helping the Blue Devils win a pair of national championships.
Other highlights from the schedule released Thursday include the first ACC road game against Georgia Tech on Jan. 11, a home game against North Carolina on Feb. 8 and a game at UNC on March 3.
The Irish will renew their rivalry against BostonCollege at home on Feb. 1.
