College hoops practice videos, social media style

It's mid-October, and basketball has begun. After the bright lights of Midnight Madness events, teams are now getting into the dirty work of putting their summer workouts to bed and getting ready for the season. This is a great opportunity for teams to connect with their fans, and that's one of the great uses of social media.

Here are a few videos that coaches tweeted to their followers. It's practice, y'all. The season is almost on us.

Here is the Cornell basketball team running a slide drill:

The Chippewas of Central Michigan, with some highlights from their first practice:

These are all videos which have come across my D-1 College Coaches column on Twitter. And since we at Run the Floor care about you, we even made a list of every head coach in the game, which you can follow with one click.
