The 2016 NEC Basketball Tournament continued with men’s semifinal play on Saturday, March 5 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 Saturday’s two men’s semifinal contests — LIU Brooklyn at Wagner; Mount St. Mary’s at Fairleigh Dickinson. The WINNER automatically advances into the eight-person #NECselfie Championship Bracket. The top-four all receive a #NEC16 PRIZE PACK.
This submission has it all – two smiling co-eds, the Wagner-themed war paint underneath the eyes and the #NECselfie hashtag lying over the photo. It has all of the characteristics of a top seed in the 8-selfie championship bracket.

It’s definitely impressive that this contestant convinced the MSG play-by-play announcer – Paul Dottino – to join him is #NECselfie. But a second-tier sports celebrity gets you second place.

THIRD PLACE: @KaylaJardineV
Not sure if Mr. @mywalkofshane stole @KayalaJardineV’s mobile device to post this, but it’s a high-quality #NECselfie worthy of a prize.

LAST ONE OUT: @5fitfun
It’s our first-ever submission from a member of the television production crew. Wonder if the producer had any idea that Ms. @5fitfun entered the #NECselfie contest while being on the clock?
