Hey Gang!  I know this isn't all encompassing information like we usually put up, but since I know there are some media personnel out there who read these blogs, I thought I'd post it anyway.

I just got this in about media credentials for the SEC Tournament next month -

SEC mediaThe credential system for the 2009 SEC Men’s Basketball Tournament is online at www.secsportsmedia.com. Click the SEC link on the top left of the page and follow credential links.


The 2009 SEC Men's Basketball Tournament will be held March 12-15
(Thursday-Sunday) at the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa, Fla. The Deadline is MONDAY, MARCH 2. Only authorized full-time salaried representatives are
eligible for credentials. Information regarding credential confirmation and
distribution will be forwarded to you via email after your application has been submitted. NO credentials will be mailed.


The Tampa Marriott Waterside (813) 221-4900 will serve as the media headquarters during the tournament. You will receive the hotel reservation card after completing your application.

Ok guys, those are the basics, but you can log on to the website to get the rest of the details. 

As always, we'll be around to answer any questions, so feel free to ask away! 

Hopefully we'll see you out there.  And for those of you who aren't media, log on to www.SECTampaBay.com to get more details about how to experience the SEC Tournament.
