A.C.C. Champs?

The Atlantic Coast Conference is a pretty mighty college sports division. Duke and Carolina win more than their share of N.C.A.A. basketball championships, and the N.B.A. is lousy with former A.C.C. players. (I suspect that Carolina players make better pros than Duke players, but that’s a topic for another day.) In 2006, Carolina’s women’s soccer team won its 18th national title.

So with all these champs to honor, what do you think is the most sought-after shirt among A.C.C. fans?

I was in Raleigh recently and found the answer in an airport A.C.C. gear shop:

Duke Shirts

The clerk told me the Duke lacrosse shirt was his best seller. I wonder how that could be. True, Duke’s lacrosse team won the A.C.C. title last year, but perhaps other factors are at play?
