The Consol's bid has been eliminated.
Because of the Atlantic Coast Conference's increased Northeastern footprint, the ACC is interested in holding a future men's basketball tournament in New York, an ACC school official told ESPN.
I'm not sure that the Consol ever stood a chance. It's one thing to host the NHL draft, or first and second round NCAA tourny games.
But it's asking a whole lot to move that southern wine and cheese party north of the Mason-Dixon. New York is one thing, but I just have a hard time believing that crowd holds the City of Pittsburgh in high regard, let alone that they would want to come spend a week there...
As a native Pittsburgher I would love it, as it would give me an excuse to go home. But I just don't think this was ever going to happen.
I don't think it would be good for the ACC to hold it in Pittsburgh either. It should be in a media center like NYC.
It would have been great for Pittsburgh though.
