CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Charlotte might want to consider changing its name to Hoops City, USA. 

For the third time in about a month, the Queen City will play host to a major basketball event as the ACC Tournament takes over uptown for the next few days. The action gets started at noon Tuesday when Wake Forest meets Miami in the first round. 

And if you ask plenty of coaches, fans and players, the ACC Tournament is right at home in North Carolina. 

"I believe the tournament should always be in Greensboro or Charlotte, said NC State coach Kevin Keatts. 

The ACC doesn't completely agree with Keatts, though. Last year's tournament meeting between rivals Duke and North Carolina saw more than 18,000 fans in attendance, setting a college basketball record for Barclays Center in Brooklyn. 

Back in North Carolina for the 50th time, the ACC Tournament is expected to make a huge financial impact on Charlotte. Hotels, restaurants and event venues are all benefiting from the extra traffic. 

Games run from noon Tuesday until the championship game Saturday night. And if you want to be there, prepare to shell out some cash. According to Stubhub, it'll cost you almost $300 for a single ticket in the lower level.
