ACC pushes for 350-team NCAA tournament

DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- With Duke's Mike Krzyzewski leading the charge, the ACC is pushing for an all-inclusive NCAA basketball tournament. You heard me right. A tournament with all 350 member schools.

The ACC submitted its vote for this proposal Wednesday. The ACC is trying to avoid non-conference games during the pandemic so this would equalize the playing field for all.

UNC Basketball put out a tweet citing player safety and incentive for all as a reason to back a 350-team tournament.

The NCAA's goal is to host the standard 68-team tournament. A decision on the format for winter sports, including men's and women's basketball is expected by Sept. 16.
