    Yeah, State, Duke, and Carolina might have to take some "regular season champs" banners down. Yikes.

    "Notably, all champions after 1961 are considered unofficial by the conference, as the ACC elected to eliminate the regular season title following that season. Since then, the conference's bylaws have stated the sole champion is the winner of the ACC Tournament, a rule that remains in place to this day. The conference's automatic NCAA berth is reserved for the winner of the ACC Tournament at the end of the season."Just to add to previous post.

    "Tournament as championshipThe ACC is unique in the fact that it is the only Division I college basketball conference that does not recognize a regular season title. This is because of the fact that in the days where only one school made the NCAA tournament per league, the ACC representative was determined by the conference tournament, rather than the regular season as other leagues did. Therefore, the league eliminated the regular season title in 1961 and has chosen to solely recognize the winner of the ACC tournament as the league champion ever since. Fans and media do sometimes claim a regular-season title for the team that finishes first, but these titles are unofficial and carry no reward other than the top seed in the ACC tournament."Just a little information.

    The ACC Basketball Champion IS the winner of the ACC Tournament.

    Recognition...I guess that would be finishing the regular season with the best record & seeding for the tournament(s).

    Take that up with the schools themselves, then.

    UNC, NC State, and Duke all recognize both the tournament winners and the schools that finish atop the standings as ACC champions, so I included that stat as well.
