Last season, nobody got to play in the NCAA Tournament. This season, there's a chance that everybody does.
The idea to include every team in the tournament is spearheaded by Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski but the vote was unanimous among all the ACC head coaches, Goodman reports.
"This is a unique time and it's time to do something different," Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim told Goodman.
The proposal's goal is to "celebrate" college basketball, and the ACC has already had discussions with Dan Gavitt and the NCAA about the possibility of an all-inclusive NCAA Tournament, according to Rothstein.
Last season's NCAA Tournament was canceled in March due to the COVID-19 outbreak after a multitude of conferences also called off their conference tournaments.
The start of the new NCAA basketball season has not yet been finalized, but the NCAA Oversight Committee will reportedly recommend Nov. 25 as start date for men's and women's basketball and the Division I Council is expected to vote for approval on Sept. 16.
