Syracuse coach rips Greensboro

BROOKLYN, NY -- Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim wasn't happy after another one-and-done performance by his Orange in the ACC Tournament.

But mostly, the coach was mainly cranky about a geography question.

Asked if he liked the tournament being in New York City, closer to his campus, Boeheim launched in to a rant against -- Greensboro, North Carolina.

The tournament has historically rotated, mostly visiting Greensboro, but also Charlotte, Washington, D.C., and Atlanta, among other sites.

It's scheduled to be in Brooklyn again in 2018, and then Charlotte in 2019.

But the tournament is often associated with Greensboro, also the home of the ACC.

"It's there because the league's been there and the office has been there," Boeheim said after Syracuse lost to Miami on Wednesday. "It should not be there. New York, Washington, Atlanta, that's where the media centers are. I'm just saying what's right. That's right. It's good business sense. We all say it's a business, well let's start acting like it's a business."

The city of Greensboro responded, poking at Boeheim's 0-3 record in the ACC Tournament.
