Additional content from the tournament will be available on HBCU Gameday’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram channels. “HBCU Gameday has done a superb job of showcasing SIAC institutions and highlighting our student-athletes. Their platform is ideal because of their partnership with Amazon and Firestick which makes them the perfect co-production partner,” said SIAC Commissioner Gregory Moore.

Immersive Experience

“The production for this year’s tournament will reflect more of what our audience wants to see at tournament time. We plan to take everyone behind the curtain a little more,” says producer and reporter Tolly Carr. “Basketball is certainly the star of the show but there’s a lot of people who contribute to putting on the show.  The cheerleaders, band members, coaches, and advisors are just some of the folks who make this an unforgettable week for the fans,” Carr said.   Longtime SIAC play by play veteran Charles Ward will be on the call for the duration of the tournament.  HBCU Gameday’s Tolly Carr will be roaming the sidelines and the stands in Birmingham to deliver new and fresh stories. “I am excited to be a part of the HBCU Gameday Team in its coverage of this year’s tournament. In addition to in-game coverage, each production promises to provide a new and compelling glimpse of the tournament from the unique perspective of fans, alumni, supporters, and even organizers of the tournament. From the sublime to the serious, viewers will see it all during our six days of coverage,” said Ward.
