Bennett a Finalist for "Man of the Year" Award

Virginia basketball coach Tony Bennett is among the finalists for the Skip Prosser Man of the Year Award.

The 20 finalists for this year's award were announced on Tuesday. The award was established in 2008 to "honor those who not only achieve success on the basketball court but who display moral integrity off of it as well."

Bennett is one of two finalists from the ACC, along with Miami coach Jim Larranaga.

Bennett's Virginia team just completed a 21-10 regular season with Sunday's overtime win against Maryland at John Paul Jones Arena. The Cavaliers enter this week's ACC tournament as the No. 4 seed.
