Anyone can communicate a team’s starters. It’s commodity content. Fans will see them on TV. Radio will announce it too. Any media can tweet it. Besides, the lineup will likely change at the first timeout.
We’ve always believed social media is best utilized to engage the emotional experience of being a fan. A starting five post represents an opportunity to build excitement for the game, to heighten anticipation for tip, to fire up your fans.
With that in mind, here are starting five posts that jump off our college basketball feed. You can also check this Twitter Moment to see a full collection from across the country.
