Men's Basketball Team Takes Media Training

BATON ROUGE – The 2013-14 LSU men’s basketball team spent time Wednesday in the practice facility media room getting used to the many situations they find themselves with the media during the course of the upcoming season.

There were topics regarding media and social media for both team veterans and newcomers as presented by veteran instructor Dr. Shirley White of locally-based Success Images.

Dr. White, who works with several of the athletics teams at LSU, spoke to the team not only about media situations, but their appearance in public outings and some of the good and bad things regarding social media.

She worked in the media room with the members of the team both in individual mock interviews and up on the risers where players are grouped for post-game home interviews.
