ACC open practice times set

One of the best days of the ACC basketball season happens on the eve of the ACC tournament.

That's when teams hold a one-hour shootaround practice at the tournament site that's free and open to the media and the public. It's a good chance for fans who can't get seats for the games to see the players and coaches in a relaxed environment. Duke and North Carolina are the only teams that aren't participating in the open practices this year.

Here's the schedule for Wednesday's open practices at the Greensboro Coliseum:

Virginia 10-10:55 a.m.; Boston College 11-11:55 a.m.; Miami noon to 12:55 p.m.; Georgia Tech 1-1:55 p.m.; Wake Forest 2-2:55 p.m.; Clemson 3-3:55 p.m.; N.C. State 4-4:55 p.m.; Virginia Tech 5-5:55 p.m.; Florida State 6-6:55 p.m.; Maryland 7-7:55 p.m.
