Centennial Conference Tip-Off Event coming

LANCASTER, Pa. – The Centennial Conference will kick off the 2012-13 basketball seasons with an innovative multimedia event on Tuesday and Wednesday, beginning at 1 p.m. both days.

The women's tip-off event will be held on Tuesday, featuring McDaniel head coach Becky Martin at approximately 1:35 p.m.

The men's tip-off event is one day later on Wednesday, featuring Green Terror head coach Kevin Curley at approximately 1:10 p.m.

The multimedia event will replace the traditional coaches' press conference, with each of the 10 head coaches discussing their prospectus for the upcoming year via an interactive video conference using Google+ Hangouts On-Air.

Coaches will each have 10-minute blocks fielding questions from both the moderator and viewers. 

Viewers can watch the live event by clicking HERE. The link will go live at 12:55 p.m. each day.

McDaniel fans will have an added bonus later in the week. Play-by-play man Tim Murray will be conducting his own media day and video interviews will be posted with both coaches and selected players from both squads to preview the upcoming season.
