GREENSBORO, N.C. - Maryland's departure from the Atlantic Coast Conference hit a lot of longtime Terps fans hard this weekend. Many who have been coming here for years and witnessed two of the school's three ACC tournament championships, in 1984 and 2004, were sad to say goodbye to Greensboro Coliseum. Me, too. After spending years covering the Big East Conference tournament at Madison Square Garden, I felt like the Eddie Albert character on the '60s sitcom “Green Acres” when I went to cover my first ACC tournament, in 1986.

COLLEGE PARK -They played with a lack of smoothness befitting a team performing for the first time in nine days. But the No. 24-ranked Maryland Terrapins did not have to worry for long last night. Maryland used enough of its quickness and height advantages, produced a strong defensive effort for most of the way and got a nice lift from its bench. It was all too much for UNC-Greensboro to handle as the Terps blew open a slightly uncomfortable game early in the second half and rolled to an 85-58 victory before an announced crowd of 17,950 at Comcast Center.

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- They held a going-away party yesterday at the Greensboro Coliseum. The guests of honor were not North Carolina and Duke, which played each other again in the championship of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, but the city fathers. And mothers.And everyone else to whom this town and this tournament are seemingly forever entwined.If the ACC tournament is, at age 45, "the granddaddy of all college basketball tournaments," then the building is certainly its favorite venue, as comfortable as a rocking chair.

For years, the Atlantic Coast Conference men's basketball tournament has had a distinctly North Carolina flavor, characterized by barbecue joints, sweet tea, Waffle House restaurants and southern drawls. As familiar as Maryland became with Greensboro (N.C.) Coliseum, the Terps - who play there Thursday against Florida State in their final ACC tournament before departing for the Big Ten - could never quite shake the sense that they were guests at somebody else's party. Maryland had its share of tournament success - winning titles in 1958, 1984 and 2004 - and its fans developed cherished road-trip traditions often involving golf, drinking, barbecued ribs, or all three.

The Atlantic Coast Conference announced today that its 2016 men's basketball tournament will be held at Washington D.C.'s Verizon Center. Is there irony here? Former Maryland coach Gary Williams long pressed for the ACC tourney to return to the Washington area. Now it decides to come back - the Verizon Center is a 25-minute drive from Maryland's campus - and Maryland will be in the Big Ten. This is the Terps' final season in the ACC. The tournament was last held in Washington in 2005 - the Terps lost in their first game  - and before that in 1976, 1981 and 1987.
