The ACC has a monstrous March in mind. The conference is proposing that every team in Division I be entered in the 2021 NCAA tournament, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reported.
The decision is reportedly to “celebrate” college basketball.

It was a unanimous vote by ACC coaches, John Goodman of Stadium reported. The idea was reportedly spearheaded by Duke men’s head coach Mike Krzyzewski and would consist of the 346 Division I teams that are eligible for postseason play. There are 357 men’s programs.
Syracuse men’s basketball head coach Jim Boeheim told Goodman it is “a unique time and it’s time to do something different.”
Several ACC programs are expected to release a statement on the proposal later Wednesday.
