  • Off to a smashing start
      The lone goal of the exhibition game Thursday night between Washington and Michigan State came off the kind of play only the best teams in the country can make.
  • Trine University Thunder expects return to winning way
    From 2008 through 2012, the Trine football program won 45 of 55 games, an average of nine victories a season. And the beat appeared to be continuing last September when the Thunder began 3-1.

ACC tournament moving to Brooklyn for 2017, 2018

NEW YORK – With banners celebrating the Nets and Jay-Z’s concert sellout streak over his shoulder, ACC Commissioner John Swofford has announced the league’s men’s basketball tournament is coming to Brooklyn.

The Atlantic Coast Conference will crown its champion at Barclays Center in 2017 and 2018 under a deal made official Wednesday.

The Atlantic 10 was scheduled to play its tournament there through 2017. But it will move in exchange for playing an ACC/A-10 doubleheader at Barclays during the 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons. The A-10 tournament will return to Barclays for three years starting in 2019.

Swofford notes that the ACC, with its roots in the South, already has a toehold in the “media capital” of New York, including its tie-in to the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium.
