ACC Tournament Returning To Verizon Center In '16; Timing Odd With Maryland Out?
Published November 14, 2013
MEET ME IN THE MIDDLE: In Greensboro, Mark Thompson asks, "Why did the ACC select Washington -- and why now?" DC "makes geographic sense for the ACC." With the addition of Syracuse, Pitt, Notre Dame and Louisville, the nation's capital "reflects a fairly central location for the league's 15 schools." Verizon Center also makes sense because it "includes 106 luxury suites, a high-definition center-hung scoreboard, an indoor basketball practice facility and 10 dressing rooms." But it "remains to be seen" how soon after '16 the ACC "returns to North Carolina with the tournament." The event "has never left the state of North Carolina for more than one year at a time, always returning to Greensboro or Charlotte" (Greensboro NEWS & RECORD, 11/14).
