New Scoreboard?, New Basketball Coach

Posted by thetribehasspoken on July 19, 2006

So says Coach Shaver. Told me the purchase is underway(for a scoreboard)

Pretty exciting. Can’t wait for next season now. A video scoreboard is much needed.

New Assistant Basketball Coach

Tony Shaver announced the addition of Ben Wilkins to the coaching staff. A manager and assistant coach at N.C. State, Wilkins also spent time at Apex High in Apex, NC(same city ’07 recriut Marcus Kitts is from). He seems to be strong at recruiting and working with film(funny this and video scoreboard comes out the same day). Here are some quotes, I’ll try to dig up some stuff on Wilkins later tonight.

“Ben was exceptionally impressive during the interview process,” Shaver said. “The professional approach he took in seeking the job was also impressive. He has a very diverse basketball background, which is a very attrac-tive asset. He has proven himself as a successful recruiter at Barton College. He worked with Coach Herb Sendek at N.C. State, and brings a lot of new ideas to our program. I really feel like he is a total package that can help bet-ter the William and Mary program.”

That was from Shaver, this is from Wilkins:

“I am really excited to work with Coach Shaver and the entire staff at William and Mary,” Wilkins said. “I enjoyed my time at N.C. State working with Coach Sendek, but coming to William and Mary is a great opportunity for me to develop as a professional and help to better the program in any way I can.”
