McGrath, who became head coach on April 3, 2017, introduced his emerging club to several members of the print and electronic media early Wednesday at the cusp of the start of the 2018-19 season.
The event, an annual ritual for college hoops teams everywhere, provides a prime opportunity for news media to meet the coaches, players and staff associated with the program. A large gathering assembled at the home of the Seahawks to interview players and coaches and witness the recording of the official team photo by UNCW Office of University Relations manager of photographic services Jeff Janowski.
McGrath took over the helm of the program in April of 2017 and piloted the Seahawks to an 11-21 record in his first season on the bench.
The Seahawks will face Clemson’s Tigers in a special exhibition game next Saturday, Oct. 27, and tackle William Peach in another exhibition of Nov. 2 before opening the season on the road against longtime rival Campbell on Nov. 6 in Buies Creek, N.C.
The Clemson game will take place at 5 p.m. on Oct. 27 in Trask Coliseum and all proceeds will benefit Hurricane Florence relief.
Season and single-game tickets for the 2018-19 men’s basketball season are now available by calling 800-808-UNCW or by visiting UNCWSports.com/BuyTickets.
