Syracuse Coach's Greensboro Comments Cause Controversy

GREENSBORO, N.C. (WGHP) - A comment from one of the newest members of the ACC has caused some controversy in Greensboro.

Syracuse men's basketball coach Jim Boeheim made a speech at the Monday Morning Quarterback Club in Birmingham, Ala., and included some comments about where he thinks the ACC Tournament will be held.

'The Birmingham News' reported Boeheim, whose school is only 4 hours from New York City, told the audience he thinks having the tournament in the Big Apple would be "great."

"Where would you want to go to a tournament for five days? Let's see: Greensboro, North Carolina, or New York City? Jeez. Let me think about that one and get back to you," Boeheim said.
