Because it has been for the most part the central location for all ACC teams The official rationale given by the ACC is that playing the ACC Tournament in Charlotte or Greensboro guarantees that it will be the biggest event going on in the city that weekend. There are fewer other things going on in those cities with which the tournament would compete for attention. Washington and Atlanta (the two other places where the ACC has held tournaments in the past) are much bigger cities with many other things going on, especially Washington. With all of that said, the league is holding the tournament outside the Carolinas more often--2005 in Washington, 2007 in Tampa, and 2009 in Atlanta.

How many games played in college basketball season?

40 games are the most that have been played in an academic year (fall and spring semesters plus post-regular season games) to date.43 games are mathematically possible (but practically impossible) in one academic year, if a team is in the right conference and makes the the title game of every tournament it plays in that year.Regular Season Games Allowed:31 games in one season, consisting of27 regular schedule games+ up to 4 games if in an in-season tournament like the Preseason NIT or Great Alaska Shootout (my quick research showed most are just 3 game tournaments),or29 games if not participating in any in-season tournaments.[Source: NCAA 2010-11 Division 1 Manual, Section 17.3.5 Number of Contests]Postseason:Add in the # of games needed to make the title games for both the conference and the NCAA tournaments to get the total games possible.7 games are possible in the NCAA tournament, but the historical reality is no team has played more than 6.Conference Tournaments5 games are possible in the Big East tournament4 games are possible in the other major conferences (I assume this is the same number for the non-majors, but I am not sure).Based on the above, the maximum number of games possiblewould be31 games before post-season+5 games possible in a conference tournament+7 games in the NCAA tournament=43 games possibleMore realistically, the most likely maximum number of possible games played in any academic year (and the most ever played as of this writing) is31 games before the post-season+3 games in a conference tournament+6 games in the NCAA tournament=40 games max in an academic year
