Greensboro Here We Come. The ACC announced Wednesday:
"The Women's [ACC] Basketball Tournament which has been played in Greensboro, N.C. since 2000 has extended its contract with the Greensboro Coliseum through the 2015 season....In addition, the women's tournament also has a one-year option to move the tournament anytime during the 2010 - 2015 seasons. If that option is used, then the Greensboro Coliseum would host the tournament in 2016."
The BasketCases had the pleasure of sampling some of Greensboro's "Southern Hospitality" this year and LOVED IT! Despite the home court advantage enjoyed by those "Blue" teams, I'm still pleased that the tourney will remain in Greensboro---those folks down there have done a wonderful job of hosting and a wonderful job of building up interest in the Women's tournament. Heck, the Sweet Potato Hash alone is worth the trip! (Now if there were only a way to make the Duke fans stay home, it would be absolutely PERFECT. *wink*)
