GREENSBORO, N.C. -- On Wednesday, the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) named the city that will host the 2016 Atlantic Coast Conference Basketball Tournament.

ACC commissioner John Swofford said in a news release the tournament will be at Washington, D.C.'s Verizon Center. 

"We are excited to bring the ACC Tournament back to the nation's capital in 2016," Swofford said. "Verizon Center is a tremendous showcase for our event, and the Washington, D.C. area is an appealing tourist destination for our member institutions, as well as the alumni and fans of our teams. We received a lot of positive feedback after our 2005 Tournament in Washington, and we look forward to duplicating that success in 2016."

The Greensboro Coliseum is hosting the tournament in 2014 and 2015.

According to the ACC's office, "the ACC Tournament has been held in seven different cities and 11 venues since the inaugural event in March of 1954."
