Please. The ACC is not leaving the state of North Carolina. Dawn played at Virginia and she knows that.

Staley is spot on. She is not saying the ACC Conference will move to Greenville. What she is saying is that if the SEC Women’s Tournament leaves Greenville, the ACC Womens Tournament will come to Greenville.

The ACC Tournament, which is what she's referring to, does move around and is not always in the state of North Carolina, on the men's side. It's been in Atlanta, Washington, and NYC in recent years. Washington this year in fact. The women's ACC tournament is held primarily in North Carolina, but as recently as 2017 was held in Conway, SC. She's right. With the popularity of women's college basketball at an all-time high, there's no reason to think the ACC won't want to move things around. And that's without even taking into account the conference shifting that's been occurring. Stanford and Cal join the ACC next season.

Well I will tell you it has been political with the ACC and the state of NC. Yes the ACC Women's tourney has been in Greensboro over 20 years except for that one season they played in SC you mentioned and that was because of the ACC moving all championship events that academic year out of NC because of a controversial house bill in the legislature not because they originally wanted it in SC. They moved the football championship from Charlotte to Orlando that year. I don't think the ACC would ever put the men's tourney in Greenville anyways as they will always probably seek larger media cities like the ones you mentioned not that it matters because the women's and men's events are held in different weeks.

Last year the ACC was looking to move their HQ out of Greensboro and possibly the state of NC but they received millions of dollars in economic incentives to remain in the state and as part of that the deal they agreed to keep many of their championship events in the state of NC. They took the deal and relocated their HQ to Charlotte.

I agree with SMU, Cal and Stanford joining things could change some. I believe they could have a men's tourney or two further west in maybe Dallas in the future.

IMO, One thing the ACC should have done a long time ago is put the ACC baseball tourney back in Greenville at Flour Field. When it was at the old G-Braves stadium in Mauldin in the 90's it seemed by far more successful and better attended than it is now in Durham NC.

Exactly - I thought the women's tourney is what we are talking about. I'm not saying the ACC will move it's HQ to Greenville. They moved ACC HQ from Greensboro to Charlotte last year. They received economic incentives to remain in NC. It's done. I'm sure Greenville wasn't on the list of possible HQ locations.
