Watch Big South Basketball Media Day on the Big South Network

The annual Big South Conference Basketball Media Day is set to take place on Tuesday at the Embassy Suites & Convention Center hotel in Concord, N.C. The event tips off the 2016-17 Big South men's and women's basketball seasons and begins with a luncheon at Noon followed by interview sessions with local, regional and national media outlets.

Starting at 8 a.m. Tuesday morning, fans can follow the day's activities via the hashtag #BSCMediaDay, as well as view content specifically for the Big South's basketball Twitter handles (@BigSouthMBB and @BigSouthWBB), Facebook Live, Instagram and Snapchat accounts throughout the day.

As part of the event, the conference will announce its annual preseason poll and preseason all-conference teams in a video presentation during the luncheon. In addition, the head coaches of the preseason favorites as well as the preseason players of the year will speak. The preseason poll and preseason all-conference teams will be available at www.BigSouthSports.com starting at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.

Again this year, the Big South Network will broadcast interviews with each team's head coach as part of a live show hosted by Mike Hogewood and Evan Lepler starting at approximately 1:30 p.m. (see below for full schedule).  In addition, ESPN3 will carry the show for the fourth consecutive year.

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