Tournament Town Day 1 Brings Fans... From Canada!

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The ACC tournament is bringing fans to Greensboro from all over the country and even Canada!

Dick and Joyce Slipp said they came to Greensboro from New Brunswick, Canada. They've never been to Greensboro, but the two former basketball coaches bought tickets to all the games.

"Its just the east coast, we've been to St. Louis and the women's Final Four," said Dick Slipp.

"This is one of the better conferences, top to bottom," said Joyce Slipp. "We don't want to see blowouts. We want to see nice, close games. So this seemed to be the place to come."

The couple goes on one trip a year and this year they picked Greensboro.

Fans also like the convenience of $5.00 shuttle service, which took away the stress of dealing with traffic.

Shuttle Service continues Friday through Sunday's Championship Game.

Friday, shuttles run from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 a.m.

On Saturday, you can catch a ride on the shuttle service between 11:30 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Sunday, shuttle rides will be available between 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.
