The UCF men's and women's basketball teams had the first of many encounters with the media this season Monday afternoon. There was plenty of excitement and energy around the players and coaches as they took photos, talked to the media and even found some time to have some fun.
Media Day was a chance for the teams to speak with the media for the first time this year about their upcoming seasons. They also had the opportunity to pose for team pictures, do a photo shoot with the local newspaper, have their individual photos taken, tape some interviews and public service announcements, etc.
The men's team came out in their gold uniforms with gold lettering and black trim, while the women's team wore their black uniforms with gold lettering and black trim. Media Day can bring out the usual, mundane questions. But it often includes some interesting questions as well. The Knights were queried about anything from their expectations for the season to the best singer on the team.
The UCF men open the 2012-13 season on Saturday, Nov. 10th at South Florida. The women open their campaign Friday, Nov. 2nd, hosting Lynn University.
Experience some of the fun of Media Day with juniors Tristan Spurlock and Erika Jones in the video above.
