TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (seminoles.com) — Florida State Women’s Basketball’s 2021-22 Atlantic Coast Conference schedule has been announced, featuring another challenging 18-game slate that runs from Dec. 19, 2021-Feb. 27, 2022.
ACC women’s basketball will return to an 18-game conference schedule in 2021-22, after playing a 20-game league slate last season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“There are no easy games in this league,” FSU Head Coach Sue Semrau said. “The amount of preparation you have to put in for each of these teams is endless. But that’s also what makes our conference so great – there’s a challenge every time you step on the court. We’re looking forward to another year of competing in the ACC. It’s the best conference in the country.”
Amongst the 18-game conference slate, the Seminoles will have 10 games that air on the ACC Network, as well as four on the league’s regional sports networks. FSU will enter the 2021-22 season with big expectations, already earning Top 20 marks in a few of the way-too-early polls offered by The Athletic and ESPNW.
