The 1961 Atlantic Coast Conference Men's Basketball Tournament was held in Raleigh, North Carolina at Reynolds Coliseum from March 2-4, 1961. Wake Forest defeated Duke 96-81 to win the championship. Len Chappell of Wake Forest was named tournament MVP.

North Carolina did not participate because the program was on NCAA probation. As a result, top seed Wake Forest received a first-round bye. The only other time an ACC team opted out of the tournament was Maryland in 1991 for similar reasons.
