The play on the court was hotter and the #NECselfie action in the stands was hotter.
The 2016 NEC Basketball Tournament tipped off on Wednesday, March 2 as did the second annual #NECselfie contest.
While supporting their favorite teams, fans were asked to snap and share selfies with the hopes of becoming the “Face of the Northeast Conference” this March.
We’ve posted the top submissions that were sent during Wednesday night’s men’s quarterfinal games below. The WINNER automatically advances into the eight-person #NECselfie Championship Bracket. The top-four all receive a #NEC16 PRIZE PACK.
Not sure this one needs an explanation. Pretty clear why these handsome fellows took home the top prize while showing their #PioneerPride.

It was the first NEC Tournament game at the Rothman Center in 10 years and Fairleigh Dickinson got the W with the help of these fantastic fans.

THIRD PLACE: @a_cat813
This one would be a winner on most nights, but the competition was fierce on this particular evening.

LAST ONE OUT: @gabbspinn
Known for her remarkable run through last year’s #NECselfie championship bracket, @gabbspinn made a valiant attempt at repeating the feat. She just missed out on top-3 honors with the difference maker being @a_cat813’s use of the oversized Glenn Braica head.

If #NECWBB coaches were eligible for the competition, one need to look no further than right here for the contest winner.
