The Atlantic Coast Conference, one of the best college basketball conferences, is close, along with just about every other basketball conference, to finishing the end of its post season tournament. In many cases around the country, the outcome of the tournament will affect how the teams are seeded for the NCAA tournament, the big end of season tournament that people like to call March Madness.
The ACC tournament is a big deal in North Carolina because there are four universities from NC in the tournament. Many of those graduates find their way back to Charlotte NC.
This year finds Duke and Florida State in the Finals of the ACC tournament. FSU knocked off the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill today to make it there. Chapel Hill is currently ranked number one in the nation going into the NCAA tournament. They have been without their starting point guard for the tournament because of an injury. Ty Lawson should be ready for the NCAA tournament though.
Duke is three hours away from Charlotte on Interstate 85 in Durham.
If you have the money, now is the time to invest in a sweet 40 inch hdtv so you can watch this tournament. It is a whole month of exciting basketball games.
