CORAL GABLES, Fla. -

The University of Miami men's basketball team released the 2013-2014 ACC schedule on Thursday.

The highlights include nationally televised games against Duke on ESPN2 and Syracuse on CBS.

Coach Jim Larranaga said, "There is no doubt in my mind that the ACC will be the strongest league in the nation this season and our conference schedule will be the most challenging in our program's history."
