Leitao making strides at UVA
The Virginian-Pilot has this article today about the steps the Hoos' new basketball coach has taken to get Virginia on the winning track. Leitao has already assembled an experienced staff and apparently has gained the trust of key players like J.R. Reynolds and Sean Singletary.
Virginia's biggest problem last year was not a lack of talent. It was a lack of discipline and motivation. Singletary was the only player that I saw giving 100% in every single game. If Leitao can get his team to give a better effort in fundamentals like rebounding and defense, they have a chance to jump over some of the ACC's heavyweights like UNC, Wake and Maryland, all of whom are losing key players to the NBA.
As a Hokie, the glimmer of hope in C'ville disturbs me.
