Dick Bennett speaks at FCA banquet


(WAOW) - When Dick Bennett took over as head coach of the Wisconsin basketball team in 1995, he inherited a team that had made just three NCAA tourney appearances in the previous 97 years.

In his six years as head coach, he took Wisconsin to the dance three times, including the final four in 2000.

Monday, Bennett was in Wausau to speak at the Fellowship of Christian Athletes banquet at Highland Community Church.

Bennett talked about his time spent coaching in Wisconsin and the challenges of living out his faith in the context of a public institution.
