Description

Virginia Basketball Coach Tony Bennet is an American former NBA basketball player and the head men's basketball coach at the University of Virginia since March 31, 2009.  Bennett is one of four former NBA players to have won the NCAA Championship as a head coach.  Bennett is the only active three-time winner of the Henry Iba Award, a two-time AP National Coach of the Year and four-time ACC Coach of the Year.  Known for coaching defensive intensity, Bennett has been ranked the top defensive coaching in college basketball by ESPN Insider and a CVS Sports poll of head coaches.  The style of basketball he teaches has often been compared to a boa constrictor choking out opponents, and his teams are known for their unselfish play, defense-first philosophy, and tempo control.
