Leibovitz will work to raise profile of SEC men's basketball

Posted 6/30/2016 in College Sports

Dan Leibovitz wants people to associate Southeastern Conference men's basketball with success. Leibovitz decided to begin his work last week during the NBA draft. When Craig Pinkerton, the SEC Director of Communications for men's basketball, tweeted the league had more first-round picks (five) than any other conference, Leibovitz shared that fact. "I sent it directly to a couple members of national media just to kind of create a little bit of buzz," Leibovitz said Monday on the SEC's summer teleconference. "Their reaction was a little bit jaded, a little bit sarcastic. I'm wondering why that is."
