Sponsor #1 Virginia’s ACC Tournament coverage

Virginia basketball is back at the #1 spot in the national rankings for the first time since 1982, and the Cavaliers seem poised to make a run deep into March Madness.

Join Augusta Free Press as editor Chris Graham chronicles the beginning of UVA’s postseason journey at the 2018 ACC Tournament in Brooklyn.

This will mark the sixth year that AFP will be courtside at the biggest conference tournament in all of college basketball.

We will be on hand from the opening round on Tuesday all the way through the championship game on Saturday night.

The tournament proves to be extra special in 2018, with as many as 12 ACC teams looking at possible NCAA Tournament at-large bids.

And then, after Selection Sunday, AFP will hit the road to follow the ‘Hoos on the Road to the Final Four, as Chris will be courtside wherever UVA basketball goes, final destination San Antonio.

As a sponsor of our ACC Tournament coverage, you will also have the right of first refusal for additional sponsorships in the NCAA Tournament.
