New Orleans, La. (9/18/13) - Fans from around the Sun Belt Conference (SBC) schools have selected the league’s new basketball championship logo after several days of social media voting per an announcement made Tuesday (Sept. 17) by the conference office.
Polling was conducted via the SBC Facebook page and fans submitted their choice among two logo options for three days last week.
The winning design features the New Orleans skyline along with the traditional New Orleans fleur-de-lis. The logo is also consistent with the Sun Belt Conference’s primary brand as it features the same typography and color palette as the Sun Belt’s primary logo.
