Liberty Men's Basketball Head Coach Dale Layer

The annual Big South Conference Basketball Media Day is set to take place on Monday at the Marriott Fairfield Inn & Suites Uptown Charlotte hotel in Charlotte, N.C. The event tips off the 2014-15 Big South men's and women's basketball seasons and features a breakfast plus interview sessions with local, regional and national media outlets beginning at 9 a.m.

As part of the event, the conference will announce its annual preseason poll and preseason all-conference teams in a video presentation.  In addition, the head coaches of the preseason favorites as well as the preseason Players of the Year will speak at the breakfast.  The preseason poll, preseason all-conference teams and preview video will be available online at www.BigSouthSports.com starting at 10:30 a.m. Monday morning.

Again this year, the Big South Network presented by State Farm will broadcast interviews with each team's head coach as part of a live show hosted by Mike Hogewood starting at approximately 10:30 a.m. (see below for full schedule).  In addition, ESPN3 will carry the event for the second consecutive year.  Fans can submit questions in advance for each team at www.facebook.com/bigsouthsports and using the hashtag #BSCMediaDay.  The conference will also post updates on its Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts throughout the day.

Additionally, the Liberty Flames Sports Network will be on hand to document the festivities in Charlotte. Watch Game On and LibertyFlames.com for complete coverage of the Big South Conference Basketball Media Day.
