Today, we're going to cheat a little bit and take you 50.3 miles, mostly east and slightly south, from Greensboro to Chapel Hill. This past Saturday, NC State came to the Dean Smith Center to challenge UNC-Chapel Hill to a game of basketball. Earlier in the season, NC State won the first game. This weekend, UNC, "Carolina" won in a game that was tied several times throughout. The above photo shows the "Dean Dome" awash in a sea of Carolina blue. Greensboro's own power forward P.J. Hairston (Dudley High School) is one a sophomore starter for UNC, and he had a great game Saturday, helping lead the Tarheels to victory.
While we don't have our own ACC team, Greensboro is proud of the fact that the Atlantic Coast Conference Headquarters is located here, as is the ACC Museum. From March 14th-17th, we will host the ACC Tournament, right here in the Greensboro Coliseum. From Duke to Wake Forest to UNC to NC State, we have fabulous college basketball in our neck of the woods. And for four days in March, the games will be as good as they get. Hope to see you there!
