I’m selfish since I’m only an hour from Greensboro but I like having it

there. Large, nice venue. It’s located less than three hour drive from seven ACC schools. This helps ensure a solid attendance. People can fly into Greensboro, RDU or Charlotte. Since there so many games on the slate it’s hard to find time for other activities but they have an incredible aquarium in town that kids love. A lot of nice hotels and the Grandover for those who want a golf resort/spa. Food scene is decent there as well.

Putting into a rotation with Charlotte and Atlanta make the most sense to me. D.C. is okay (for Hoos I know this is preferable) ugh to Brooklyn. Those are expensive places to host ACC tournaments, especially for families. Greensboro isn’t a big name city but it does big time college hoops well.

I’d like to see Raleigh Durham get in the mix too. So many great things happening in this area. Great food, nice hotels, great airport, lots of outdoor activities, museums, etc etc.
