ACC match returns to Greensboro in 2023 | ACCXtra | Greensboro ACC
In March of this year, Greensboro was to host college basketball tournaments for three consecutive weeks: the 28th ACC women’s tournament, the 67th ACC men’s tournament, and the NCAA tournament games in the first and second round.
Brown hopes for a repeat in 2023.
“We filed an application for NCAA tournament dates for ’23 through ’26,” said Brown. “My personal belief is … you’d think the NCAA would mark all websites that had lost 20 years with new dates for 23. If it goes that way, we would be able to do the Trifecta all over again. That would really help our community to recover. “
There have been more than 1 million confirmed coronavirus cases in the U.S., more than 58,000 deaths.
Swofford doesn’t regret the decision to cancel the ACC tournament after six games. He knows the hollow feeling was necessary.
“The pain is real, but everyone has bigger problems now,” said Swofford. “This is good news and it is good that Greensboro can certainly look forward to it. One of the difficult things in the world right now is that there is so much uncertainty ahead of us. This had to be done. And it had to be done quickly. “
And it happened before all the signs of the tournament that never really ended could be removed.
