GEORGES NAMED UVI MEN'S BASKETBALL HEAD COACH

Nov. 13, 2002 – Sean Georges is the new head coach of the Buccaneers men's basketball team at the University of the Virgin Islands
Georges, whose many years of basketball experience includes playing for the UVI men's team, made his coaching debut this summer as head coach of the St. Thomas summer league team "To Win It" (on the scoreboards as TWI). He led TWI to the regular season first-place finish.
Georges said he is honored to be named to the post and looks forward to a successful season. "It's an honor to be selected as UVI men's basketball head coach after being a basketball player here for so many years," Georges said. "I plan to use the skills I learned from the four coaches I played under here at UVI to lead this squad to wins."
Georges said that what the team lacks in size will be made up in speed and accuracy. Georges himself, at 6'4", is not short of size.
Georges is a student housing supervisor on the UVI St. Thomas campus.
The UVI men's basketball season officially begins in the 2003 spring semester; however, several games are scheduled for this semester. The team will play its first game under Georges' leadership this weekend in what is titled the "Ferry Boat Series." The "Ferry Boat Series" features games between UVI and Tortola's H. Lavity Stoutt Community College. Games are scheduled for 9 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 15, and Saturday, Nov. 16, at the UVI Sports and Fitness Center. The games are free and open to the public.
Georges replaces Cyril Benjamin, who coached the UVI men's and women's basketball teams last season. Benjamin will continue to coach the women's team.
