Text to support your team’s charity! The final standings at the end of the challenge will be based on a 1-3 scale. The team making the most three pointers at the end of the challenge will receive a “3” for that category. The team with the least three point shots will receive a “1.” Likewise, the team with the most texts from fans will receive a “3” and the team with the least will receive a “1.” The combined totals from each school’s men’s team, women’s team and the number of texts will determine first, second and third place.

The winning team will receive a $15,000 donation to their charity.

  • First place -- $15,000
  • Second place -- $10,000
  • Third place -- $7,500

You could win tickets to watch your team in the conference tournament.
Fans may text once per day throughout the ACC regular season. Check back often to watch the scoreboard totals rise, and to see who is in the lead! Message and data rates apply.

We’ll select one winner from each school’s fans to follow their team through the conference tournament. That means the winner receives two tickets for each game for as far as their team goes in the conference tournament. The winners will be selected and notified in March.
