Opened in 1959, the Greensboro Coliseum has become a hotbed for college basketball action when the games matter most. Located in the heart of ACC country, near the conference's home offices, the venue has regularly hosted games in the ACC Tournament, featuring some of the best teams in one of the best conferences in college basketball history.
Of course, hosting the ACC Tournament means hosting blue-blood programs including Duke and North Carolina, as well as other prolific basketball schools like Miami and Louisville. Among the legendary coaches who have coached postseason games in this venue are Mike Krzyzewski, Roy Williams, and Rick Pitino, all of whom have used games in the Greensboro Coliseum as a springboard to NCAA Tournament success.
The Greensboro Coliseum has also been the home to several NCAA Tournament games, including a men's Final Four in 1974. It hosts early-round games of the tournament often, thanks to the venue's geographic proximity to a number of schools that often find themselves at the top of the college basketball rankings. As a result, the Greensboro Coliseum regularly hosts Duke or North Carolina games in the early stages of the tournament, with those games often drawing a crowd filled with fans of those programs.
That convenient arrangement for those ACC powerhouses led to one of the most memorable moments in the history of the NCAA Tournament in 2012, when Duke was the two-seed in their region and fell to 15-seed Lehigh in the first round. Lehigh, led by CJ McCollum, outplayed Duke for the majority of the game, with their star McCollum looking every bit like the star he would become in the NBA.
Greensboro Coliseum was also a piece of wrestling history dating back to the old territory days, which led WWE to revive its Starrcade show there in 2017.
