All 12 ACC Mascots will entertain Friday's audience for the 6 and 8 o'clock games

Greensboro, NC - The 2011 ACC Women’s Basketball Tournament will feature its third annual “Mascot Night presented by Food Lion” during the evening session of Friday, March 4.

Beginning at 5 p.m., the mascots from each of the 12 ACC institutions will be on hand at the Greensboro Coliseum to greet and interact with patrons, pose for photos, hand out autographed posters and bring family fun to those in attendance for Session VI (6 & 8 p.m. games) of the Tournament.

“The ACC and the Greensboro Coliseum have focused on making this particular session of the Tournament a value-packed, entertaining night of basketball and a unique opportunity for families to have fun with the most recognizable “characters” of our conference family,” said ACC Associate Commissioner and Tournament Director Nora Lynn Finch.

Fans can see their favorite mascots, who begin their Friday participating in the morning news (WFMY, WXII, & WGHP) from the hours of 5 a.m. to 8 a.m., at several different locations throughout the day. Ten mascots not competing in Friday’s 11 a.m. women’s basketball game at the Coliseum will spend quality time at Food Lion (Palladium Shopping Center, High Point) bagging groceries and enjoying photo opportunities with customers.

The entire group of mascots will be available in ACC FanFest presented by AT&T, located in the Coliseum Pavilion, beginning at 4:30 p.m., while a “Meet and Greet” is scheduled for fans from 5:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on the Greensboro Coliseum concourse and two special halftime performances will be delivered by the energized mascots.

Tickets for “Mascot Night presented by Food Lion” and all other sessions of the 2011 ACC Women’s Basketball Tournament are still on sale now at, all Ticketmaster outlets, charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000, or at the Greensboro Coliseum box office.

The 2011 ACC Women’s Tournament will mark the 12th consecutive year the Coliseum has played host to the event. Last year, the Tournament set a new single-game attendance record in the opening round’s School Day game with a crowd of 11,445 that featured approximately 7,800 elementary students, nearly 2,000 more than the year before.
