If you had a hashtag to describe yourself, what would it be?
At the annual college basketball production seminar – held at ESPN’s Bristol, Conn., headquarters prior to the start of each season – ESPN commentators, producers, directors and support staff gather to plot the upcoming season. These people – who are #ObsessedWithHoops – spend two days #TalkinBall.
Friday night marks the start of the 2014-15 men’s and women’s college basketball seasons – more than 2,700 total games across ESPN platforms. Men’s game action on Friday includes the third annual Armed Forces Classic matching Minnesota, coached by Richard Pitino, against Louisville, led by Richard’s father Rick, from the U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Borinquen in Puerto Rico (7 p.m. ET, ESPN). The women’s opening night schedule is highlighted by two-time defending national champion and No. 1-ranked Connecticut playing at UC Davis (10 p.m., ESPN3).
After much thought and deliberation, these #Humble, #Trill and #FreakinAwesome ESPN commentators sat down with Front Row to let us in on their hashtag.
