The 2010 Atlantic Coast Conference Men's Basketball Tournament, a part of the 2009-10 NCAA Division I men's basketball season, took place from March 11–March 14, 2010, at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina. The tournament was broadcast on the ESPN family of networks except in ACC markets, where it was syndicated by Raycom. Both broadcasters had the games available in HD. As of June 2010, the Greensboro Coliseum has hosted the ACC Men's Basketball Tournament 22 times, more than any other venue.

This tournament was notable for the high number of upsets, with the higher seed winning only twice in the first two rounds, and the 11 and 12 seeds progressing to the semifinals. The championship game matched Duke against Georgia Tech. Duke won the championship game, 65–61, to win its 9th ACC championship in 12 years, and the most titles in ACC history at 18. As the conference champion, Duke received the ACC's automatic bid to the 2010 NCAA Tournament, which Duke would go on to win.
