Xavier Athletics Debuts Game Night: A Look Inside
July 5, 2011
CINCINNATI -- Xavier University Athletics debuted today the first of a six-part webisode series that will take fans behind-the-scenes of a men's basketball game night at Cintas Center. The series, titled "Game Night: A Look Inside", was developed in partnership between Xavier's Athletic Department and the Xavier Office of University Communications. The idea was hatched as Cliff Jenkins, Video Manager, was given unrivaled access to the program by Head Coach Chris Mack and was able to capture hours of high definition footage during the Atlantic 10 Conference portion of the 2010-11 season.
Each of the short stories, which will be shown exclusively online, will be launched during the first week of the next five months leading up to tip-off of the season in November. A bonus sixth webisode will conclude the series during the week of the regular season home opener on November 11. Fans can access the webisodes directly via the Xavier Musketeers YouTube page or via a launch page that is accessible on GoXavier.com.
The series is designed to feature a different portion of the typical game night routine at Cintas Center. The first webisode will give fans a glimpse of pregame shootaround, beginning four hours before tip-off. The corresponding webisodes will showcase other elements of game night including marketing game operations, manager pregame duties, sports medicine, and the conclusion of the game.
The webisode launch coincides with the excitement around the public sale of season tickets, which began today.
