GREENSBORO, N.C. – It is, without a doubt, the most storied existing conference tournament in college basketball, particularly now that the “new Big East” is a shell of what was the “old Big East.”
For the 62nd season – and the 26th time in Greensboro -- the Atlantic Coast Conference is conducting its post-regular season/pre-NCAA tournament affair. No such tournament supersedes the significance of winning this one.
“It would be really powerful to hang a banner with ACC on it,” said Irish head coach Mike Brey. “We had such a respected identity in the Big East, and we yearn to develop that in the ACC.”
