SAN ANTONIO (AP) Virginia coach Tony Bennett had hoped to be here this weekend with a No. 1 seed preparing to play his team's first Final Four in 34 years.
Instead, he found himself trying to reconcile a terrific four-plus months - good enough to bring him here to collect the trophy as The Associated Press men's college basketball coach of the year - with the fact the Cavaliers fell to UMBC to become the first No. 1 seed to lose to a 16-seed in NCAA Tournament history.
Dealing with the weight of that history, he figures, is part of coaching a team with no games left to play.
