New Virginia Coach Looks Toward Recruiting
Virginia's new basketball coach had three priorities when he first took his new job. Nearly all tied into recruiting. Tony Bennett wanted to keep two recruits in the fold, including second-team All-Met Tristan Spurlock from Word of Life Academy in Springfield. He wanted to hire coaches who knew the region, eventually landing former American U. assistant and Virginia player Jason Williford. And he wanted to get to know his players and prospective recruits.
Bennett's next task in rebuilding the program?
"Recruiting," he answered, without a moment of hesitation. "Familiarizing yourself with the university. Just basically getting to work doing what coaches do when they are trying to build teams."
