The BUSINESS JOURNAL OF CHARLOTTE's Erik Spanberg writes that preparations for this week's ACC tournament in Charlotte include the return of a 90,000-square-foot hospitality and entertainment tent at the Charlotte Coliseum that is estimated to cost $400,000. The Coliseum generates profits of $50,000-$100,000 from the tournament, most of which it puts back into the event (BUSINESS JOURNAL OF CHARLOTTE, 3/4 issue)....In Albany, Tim Reynolds reported that the MAAC has signed a five-year broadcast deal with Host Communications beginning with the 2000-01 academic year with the intentions of getting "more MAAC teams on television nationwide" (Albany TIMES UNION, 3/7).
