G'boro to host NCAA's and Other Info

It's been a very slow month waiting for the season to get started. So I though I'd put together a post with a few interesting story links.

- The News & Record is reporting that the Greensboro Coliseum will again be a host to the first and second rounds of the 2012 NCAA Division I basketball tournament. The coliseum is hosting thing the women's ACC Tournament in 2010 through 2015, and the men's tournament in all of the same years except 2012 (Atlanta). Greensboro was a host site for last year's first and second rounds.

- UNCG will play host to both East Carolina and Wake Forest this season. However, it won't be the first time these teams play in the coliseum. Wake and ECU will meet in Greensboro on November the 15th. You can buy tickets here.

- Former UNCG AD Nelson Bobb will be enshrined into the Guilford County Sports Hall of Fame tonight. He served as AD at UNCG for the past 26 years.

- Don't forget that if you haven't bought your season tickets yet, you can do so here. Its still a really great deal since parking is included in the price. Single game tickets go on sale Monday, October 19 (10 am) and can be found here.
