Pac-12: Behind the Scenes at Pac-12 WBB Media Day
SAN FRANCISCO – Arizona State University head women’s basketball coach Charli Turner Thorne and senior guard Deja Mann spent Thursday at Pac-12 Studios in San Francisco as the Pac-12 held its annual Women’s Basketball Media Day.
Both Turner Thorne and Mann were ushered through a daylong media circuit, which included meetings with not only writers and television personalities who cover Pac-12 women’s basketball, but also those who cover women’s college basketball from a national perspective.
“I thought last year’s Pac-12 Media Day was impressive and this year’s even better,” said Turner Thorne, who will be entering her 17th season at ASU. “There was a great turnout of national media. We had Rebecca Lobo and Kara Lawson from ESPN and Doug Feinberg, who is the national women’s college basketball writer for the Associated Press.”
In addition to meeting with the media, Mann and Turner Thorne participated in a series of promotional activities that the conference will utilize across all of its media platforms throughout the season.
“I think the Pac-12 is doing an outstanding job not only in its television coverage, but also in its comprehensive approach and commitment to getting the word out about the amazing people within the programs – the student-athletes and their stories. It was an awesome day and we were happy to be a part of it.”
