GREENSBORO, NC – The 2015 ACC Women’s Basketball Tournament will feature its fifth annual “Mascot Night presented by Food Lion” during the final session of Friday, March 6.

The mascots from each of the 15 ACC institutions will be on hand at the Greensboro Coliseum to greet and interact with patrons, pose for photos and bring family fun to those in attendance for Session 8 (6 & 8 p.m. games) of the Tournament.

“Mascot night is perfect for families looking for top-notch entertainment at a great price,” ACC Senior Associate Commissioner Nora Lynn Finch said. “Fans have the chance to have fun with the ACC mascots while watching many of the nation's best teams battle for the coveted ACC trophy."

Fans can see their favorite mascots at several different locations throughout the week. Mascots whose teams will not be competing in the Thursday evening games at the Coliseum will be at Food Lion (Palladium Shopping Center, High Point) bagging groceries and enjoying photo opportunities with customers 6 – 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 6.

The mascots will begin their Friday participating in the morning news (WFMY, WXII, & WGHP) from 6 – 8 a.m. The entire group will be available in FanFest, located in the Coliseum Pavilion, beginning at 4:30 p.m. The fun will continue in game where the mascots will be a part of multiple time out performances and two special halftime acts.
