MAAC Honor Roll Dinner
A new element of the MAAC Championship week will be the addition of the MAAC Honor Roll Dinner on Friday, March 2 at the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. The Honor Roll Dinner is a cultivation event built around the MAAC’s presence in the Hall of Fame for the next three years. It also helps to leverage the Hall of Fame brand and its national visibility with the MAAC championships. The purpose of the Honor Roll Dinner is to recognize past MAAC student athletes on their success in life after MAAC basketball. Each school will be honoring one male and one female basketball alumni (coach or player) that evening. (Click here to view entire honorees list)
The honorees will receive a special recognition from a Hall of Fame legend at the dinner and each honoree will be added to the MAAC exhibit at the Hall of Fame. Jack Powers, Director of the NIT, will speak on behalf of the entire induction class. John Doleva, President and CEO of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame will also give remarks along with Hall of Famer Gale Goodrich. The honorees profile and photo will be added to the video display at the MAAC experience as well. Honorees will be recognized in between the men’s first round games this Friday and be interviewed in a broadcast during the tournament. There will also be a four page profile on each honoree in the basketball championship program.
The 2012 MAAC Honor Roll Dinner will allow the MAAC to recognize individuals that have made a difference on each MAAC campus. This will be an unforgettable night for all the honorees.
