GREENSBORO, N.C. -- For some ACC basketball fans, they don't even want to let the Greensboro Coliseum out of sight during the tournament.

So, a village of RV's in the coliseum's parking lot is now many fans' home.

Shannon Nance, a UNC fan, is staying in an RV with a group of friends and family.

"We are all staying here," he said. "Been here since Wednesday, and we're staying until Saturday night -- maybe Sunday depending on how the game goes."

Nance said staying in an RV in the parking lot is the most convenient option.

"We don't want to leave," he said. "We stay right here. We go to the game, come back, eat, then head to the next game."

Nance's RV is a mix of UNC and State fans. The RV's owner, Dina Hinson, said they can bond over their intense love of basketball.

"Joking aside, it's awesome. And everybody gets along," Hinson said.

Hinson said she is sad to see the ACC Tournament move to Washington D.C. next year. Her RV won't make the trip there, but she'll eagerly await the tournament's return to North Carolina.
