Hubie Brown shoutout to Dick Bennett
There was a nice reference to UW-Green Bay and its most famous former men’s basketball coach and player on an ESPN 2 broadcast of an NBA game last week. Analyst and former coach Hubie Brown, following a promotional plug for his network’s broadcast of the big Duke-Virginia college game, added, “I’m very happy to see Virginia playing the way they’re playing now because young Bennett (Tony) is a definite clone of his dad (Dick). His father was one of the greatest college coaches ever at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay and also Stevens Point and at the UW and even Washington State.” Tony Bennett’s Virginia team was No. 2 in the nation and undefeated at the time.
