Sports Staff Covers Mountain West Tournament
Seven members of The Utah Statesman spent their spring break in sunny Las Vegas this past month, covering the USU men's and women's basketball teams in the Mountain West tournament.
It was the second consecutive year a large contingent of student media has traveled to Sin City to cover the tournament, rub shoulders with professionals, enjoy a little sun and produce a whole bunch of content.
Along with the usual game previews and recaps, the group streamed pre and postgame shows on Facebook Live. The final pre and postgame shows were also aired live throughout Cache Valley and online via Aggie Radio 92.3, KBLU-LP.
The USU spirit squad was also featured, as the cheer and dance teams participated in two service projects to help underprivileged youth and adults. All the content was compiled into an insert, which ran in the first issue of the paper after spring break, as while as being disseminated in various ways on www.usustatesman.com and social media.
