PROVIDENCE, R.I.
- The BIG EAST Conference, in conjunction with Digital Network partner XOS Digital, will continue to expand upon BIGEAST.org and BIGEAST.tv coverage of the 2010 men's and women's basketball media days on Oct. 20 and 21 in New York City.  Fans should visit the media days home page sites before, during and after the events to watch exclusive interviews with players and coaches, read previews of each team and order men's and women's basketball media guides and much more.

 

Throughout the regular season and conference championships, fans should check BIGEAST.org for highlights of every televised game and for weekly webisodes produced by XOS Digital that will give BIG EAST basketball fans insight into the league and their favorite team that they can't find anywhere else.

 

In addition to increased video programming, each media day page consists of outlook, roster and schedule information for every team.  Free BIGEAST.tv video of interviews with players and coaches from each team will be added late in the day Wednesday and Thursday.  Fans can also watch Commissioner John Marinatto's opening remarks from both events.  Additional video will be added in the days following men's and women's media day as it becomes available.

 

In addition, fans should check out the BIGEAST.org newsstand in the days following media day, where they'll be able to check out all of the local and national coverage of the league and its schools at media day to save fans the hassle of scrounging the Internet for the news and features they desire.

 

Fans should be sure to check the BIG EAST Conference's official Facebook page (www.facebook.com/bigeastconference) and its men's and women's basketball Twitter accounts (@BigEastMBB and @BigEastWBB) for exclusive behind-the-scenes updates from various BIG EAST staff members attending the media day events. 

 

BIGEAST.tv is the BIG EAST Conference's online home for live and on-demand streaming audio and video.  For the first time, BIGEAST.tv will offer all live championship programming completely free of charge. The site also houses hundreds of hours of game highlights, historical footage and original conference programming.
