SOCIAL MEDIA HUB // 2016 WOMEN'S FINAL FOUR
To conclude his externship with the NCAA, Zac lead a group of 16 students to produce, monitor and interact with content and fans who were both at the Final Four and who were engaging with the accounts over social media. Below are some pieces of content that he developed from scratch and pushed out on the Women's Final Four accounts during the tournament.
The UConn Huskies won a fourth consecutive national championship – a first-time occurrence in Division I women’s basketball. Earning its 11th title, the Huskies tied the University of California, Los Angeles, men’s basketball team’s all-time mark for Division I championships. The UConn title also made Geno Auriemma the only Division I basketball coach in history with 11 championships, passing UCLA men’s coach John Wooden. UConn’s Breanna Stewart (below) also set a collegiate basketball record by being named the Women’s Final Four Most Outstanding Player for the fourth consecutive year.
Media day allowed Zac and his team to talk with the top five players from each team and gave them the creative freedom to produce any content they thought would come in handy during the remainder of the weekend. After working with three of the four Final Four teams, Zac was able to take the footage captured and develop the GIFs to compliment live game play on Twitter.
