Quinnipiac University's "Bobcat Den" has been named the top student section in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference in the 2014 Naismith Student Section of the Year contest.
The honor, determined through two rounds of public votes, combined with a scoring of finalists by the Naismith Awards Board of Selectors, amounted to the Bobcat Den winning a prize of $250 toward the institution's general college fund and bragging rights for the year.
The Naismith Student Sections of the Year award is presented through a partnership of The Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC), an affiliate of IMG College, the Atlanta Tipoff Club and administrators of the Naismith Awards. The award is dedicated to celebrating the students and fans that love college basketball and provide support to their college basketball team with passion and devotion.
"College basketball student sections help define a team's home court advantage with their infectious spirit and energy, and we want to celebrate that," said Catherine Gammon, Senior Vice President of Brand Development for CLC, the licensing affiliate of IMG College.
