Want ACC tourney tix?

Dane Huffman is reporting that if you want the normally hard-to-get ACC men's basketball tournament tickets, Monday's the day.

The ACC announced Tuesday that tickets for the 2009 ACC Men’s Basketball Tournament will be available for sale on a tournament book basis starting Monday, March 2.

The 56th annual ACC Tournament is scheduled for March 12-15 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Ga. The tournament has not had a public sale since 1966, although tickets were available at the gate on the day of games in Tampa in 2007.

“Due to the unique combination of playing this year’s tournament in a dome during very trying economic times, our league has the opportunity to offer a public sale of ACC Tournament tickets," ACC Commissioner John Swofford said in a statement. “Playing in the Georgia Dome provides a great stage for our conference teams and Atlanta has been a terrific partner. Having already sold more tickets to this year’s tournament than the capacity of any of our other venues, our schools felt it would be appropriate to offer the remaining tickets to college basketball fans in the Atlanta area.”

Tickets can be purchased, starting Monday, by contacting Ticketmaster by phone at 404-249-6400 or 1-800-326-4000 or by going to http://www.ticketmaster.com/section/sports.

So there you go.
