Greensboro: When In Doubt, Beg

By Jessica Garrison - March 24, 2007

For all the hospitality they've offered us here in Greensboro (and it's been fantastic, a sentiment echoed by ASU's Charli Turner Thorne in her press conference), it looks like they're a little worried that it will be a ghost town here on Monday night now that forgone Elite Eight conclusion Duke is, well, gone.

The official statement from ACC Commissioner John D. Swofford, released to the press minutes ago:

"The great thing about the Triad Community is that it has a tradition of hospitality, especially when it comes to college athletics.

On Monday night, Arizona State and Rutgers will compete at 7 p.m. for the chance to advance to the Final Four. We encourage all ACC fans, women's basketball fans and sports enthusiasts to come out, support these teams and make a difference.

Let's show our appreciation for these student-athletes and demonstrate why this community has come to be recognized as 'Tournament Town.'"
I hear ya, Johnny. I'll be there.
