Along with hosting more ACC Men’s Basketball Tournaments than any other venue, the Greensboro Coliseum has the unique record of hosting the only ACC Men’s Basketball Tournament ever canceled in mid tournament.
The 2020 ACC tournament was canceled on Thursday, March 12, with the teams out on the floor warming up for the first game of the day. It had been announced earlier that due to concerns about COVID-19 each team would only be allowed to have 150 people in the 20,000 plus seat Greensboro Coliseum, but John Swofford, who was then ACC commissioner, went to the floor of the arena and announced the tournament was being canceled.
