N.C. State doesn't expect to sell out ACC Tournament ticketsBy Dane Huffman

Raleigh, N.C. ? N.C. State is not expected to sell out its ACC Tournament tickets, according to Bobby Purcell, executive director of the Wolfpack Club.
ACC schools are allotted 2,600 tickets for the basketball tournament, which is at the massive Georgia Dome in Atlanta March 12-15. But the recession and size of the allotment have caused many schools to struggle to sell tickets.
Generally, the allotment has been around 1,500 tickets and interest in the tickets is intense.
Purcell said the ACC has had two conference calls with school officials on the matter. Purcell said on the last conference call, North Carolina was the only school to have sold out its allotment.
An Iron Duke official told WRAL on Friday that his school only had 100 books of tickets left. But Duke has had to make tickets available to all employees, alumni and students in addition to Iron Duke members.
The ACC has not had a public sale of tournament tickets since 1966, but Virginia Tech already has its tickets on sale to the general public.
Schools that don?t sell their tickets could return them to the ACC, which Purcell said would be unprecedented for N.C. State. The ACC could distribute the tickets to schools that want more or sell them to the public. The ACC could also force each school responsible for all of its ticket allotment.
