The ACC men’s basketball tournament is closer than most people likely realize. As we enter the last week of January and the first week of February the ACC men’s basketball tournament is just weeks away from tipping off.

The only thing to do now is the get ready and make sure that you know how to watch the game, if you want to go in person, or if you just want to watch the tourney on TV. One of the more interesting aspects of the tournament this year is there’s still a ton of different ways things could shake out.

While the ACC men’s basketball tournament is very, very close, the standings are such that the bracket could shake out in quite a few different ways.

Where the ACC mens’ basketball tournament will take place?

One of the more interesting aspects of this conference’s tournament is that it moves around quite a bit. Last year it took place in Greensboro, North Carolina. The year before that it took place in New York City.

This year, the ACC men’s basketball tournament is tipping off in the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. 

Action will start on March 12 with several of the lowest seeds in the conference trying to get further into the tournament. The ACC champion will be crowned four days later on March 16.

How to watch the ACC men’s basketball tournament

The first round of the tournament will be televised exclusively on the ACC Network, with the first game tipping at 2pm Eastern. Every round and every game after that will either be on ESPN, ESPN2, or a rare appearance on ESPNU.

The conference finals will be broadcast on ESPN at 8:30pm Eastern on March 16. Having the tournament ending on a Friday gives the selection committee plenty of time to decide how many teams from the conference are going dancing and what seeds they’ll get.
