All seats were taken as UVA Head Basketball Coach Tony Bennett put on a headset and talked hoops for "Coaches Corner" at Wild Wing Cafe.

Bennett spoke candidly at the event, saying his favorite part of the teams amazing run - was watching Akil Mitchell guard Duke standout freshman Jabari Parker. "The way he defended Jabari Parker - that gave me goose bumps," he stated.

We caught up with Greg Garbee, a fan who says its just cool to see that he's such a down-to-earth guy. "He's a great coach.  He's a very personable guy. He's got great leadership and it's awesome that he does this every week. He puts himself out there whether he wins or loses. He puts himself out there and faces the fans."
