Legendary basketball coach Bobby Knight posed the question some years ago – What the heck is a game face?
Let’s help answer Coach Knight’s question while saluting the many #NEChoops fans out there.
Over the next couple of weeks, the NEC is sponsoring a “selfie” contest in conjunction with its annual postseason basketball tournament.
We are asking fans to show us their best game faces by taking selfies and posting them to Twitter or Instagram with #NECselfie hashtag.
As the tournament progresses our staff will collect every #NECselfie and post them right here on our blog.
We will be selecting a “#NECselfie of the Day” for every day of tournament action and those winners will receive a free #NEC15 prize pack.
The #NECselfie Bracket
While the players settle the score on the floor, there is also a title to be won through social media.
We are attempting to honor the best #NECselfie game face.
At the conclusion of the #NEC15 tournament, we’ll unveil a 8-selfie championship bracket. Fans will then vote, on a round-by-round basis, for the best selfies of the bunch.
Following five days of voting, we will crown the 2015 #NECselfie champion!
The “Final 4” selfies will all earn a NEC gift certificate along with a package of official licensed #NECsports apparel.
The 8-selfie championship bracket will be unveiled March 18.
How to Participate
1) Displaying your best game face, pose in front of your smart phone and snap a #NECselfie
2) Post your #NECselfie to Twitter of Instagram using the aforementioned hashtag
3) Visit necovertime.com to see if your #NECselfie won you a prize
