Win Your Way to NEC Basketball ‘Social’ Media Day

Your #NECpride can earn you a ticket to NEC Basketball "Social" Media Day.

The Northeast Conference is bringing its season tip-off festivities back to Brooklyn, and you can win a VIP pass that will put you in the middle of the action on October 22 at Barclays Center.

The only other requirements for a chance to win your way to Brooklyn are an Instagram account and a little bit of creativity.

Those interested in winning must make an Instagram video (15 seconds or less) in which they show their #NECpride and give a reason why they should receive a VIP invitation to "Social" Media Day.

Beginning Friday September 27, fans may enter the contest by posting their Instagram videos using the hashtag #NECinNYC. You MUST include the hashtag to be eligible and it's also probably a good idea to wear some school apparel in the video.

All submissions must be posted on Instagram by Sunday, October 6. From that pool, the NEC staff will hand pick up to 10 finalists who will advance to the voting round. Voting will commence on October 7 and run through October 10. The entry with the most votes will win the NEC Basketball "Social"Media Day Grand Prize Pack.

Complete details are listed below. Now get to work, and maybe we'll see you in Brooklyn.
