Swofford affirms ACC interest in NYC
Posted May 20, 2013
ACC Commissioner John Swofford reiterated interest Monday in a New York City presence for the conference's men's basketball tournament.
In an interview with Adam Gold and Joe Ovies on 99.9 FM The Fan ESPN Radio, Swofford said, "We do have an interest as a league of having some presence in New York with the tournament and other ways as well."
The specifics have yet to be worked out, said the "Ninja Commissioner," as he laughed at the nickname given him by media surprised by changes he's managed over the past calendar year.
The ACC Tournament is committed to two more years in Greensboro, and Swofford said he'd want to continue to honor the tradition the conference has established in North Carolina.
