ACC Commissioner John Swofford on Today's NCAA Men's Basketball Announcement

April 22, 2010

 

"CBS Sports does an excellent job in its coverage of the NCAA Tournament and today's announcement that they will partner with Turner Broadcasting for the long-term future is a terrific one. Turner is a welcome addition to the collegiate landscape. I'm very supportive of the Committee's recommendation to expand the field to 68 teams, allowing this special event to be maintained in a similar and popular structure. It also protects the regular-season and conference tournaments which are particularly important to the ACC, as well as other conferences and their individual institutions."
