Greetings from Greensboro

March, 19, 2009
GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Greetings from the Greensboro Coliseum, which is slowly being taken over by fans wearing Carolina blue as LSU and Butler get things started in the first game.

Both UNC coach Roy Williams and Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski have downplayed the fact that the two rivals are under the same roof again, just about an hour from both of their campuses.

ACC commissioner John Swofford has a front-row seat near halfcourt and is watching the opening game. He wasn't at Texas coach Rick Barnes' press conference Wednesday, though, when Barnes -- who grew up in North Carolina following ACC hoops -- said this is where the conference tournament should always be. It hasn't been here since 2006.
