What used to be called the MAAC's annual Media Day is now known as its Basketball Preseason Awards show. And, that's not the only change.
For the first time in the league's history, the show (Tuesday, Oct. 25) can be viewed live via MAAC.TV, direct from the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass.
The free live coverage begins at 9:30 a.m.
The program begins with interviews of all 20 MAAC basketball head coaches (10 men, 10 women). The interviews will be conducted by Doug Sherman and Rob Kennedy on the men's side and Vin Parise and Julianne Viani on the women's side.
At 11:15 a.m. the program shifts to the Hall of Fame's renowned Center Court for the unveiling of the Preseason Coaches' Polls and Preseason All-MAAC teams.
The event concludes with the unveiling of the conference's exhibit, The MAAC Experience, in the Hall of Fame and its signature "A Day in the Life" video featuring 10 MAAC Basketball student-athletes. Check MAACSports.com on Monday for more information on the exhibit.
