TAMPA, Fla. — TAMPA, Fla.-- --Finally, my first ACC men's basketball tournament. I'd heard the stories from coaches, players and fellow sportswriters for years and have looked forward to experiencing the event in person. The rich tradition. The frenzied excitement. The flip-flops and sunscreen.
Yep, you read that right. Something funny happened when the tournament made the trek from Tobacco Road to the Cigar City. That little thing that made the event so special seems to have gotten lost, stranded at a Waffle House in Georgia probably.
