AP source: ACC presidents vote to add Louisville

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says that the Atlantic Coast Conference's presidents and chancellors have voted unanimously to add Louisville as the replacement for Maryland.

The person says ACC leaders also considered Connecticut and Cincinnati over the past week before choosing to add the Cardinals from the Big East. The person spoke to The Associated Press Wednesday morning on condition of anonymity because the ACC has not publicly discussed future expansion plans.

The person says the vote came during a conference call of ACC presidents and chancellors.

Maryland announced last week it would join the Big Ten in 2014.
