CHARLOTTESVILLE — To a U.Va. basketball team with few frontcourt options, Will Regan will be a welcome addition next year.
Regan, a 6-8 senior at Nichols School in Buffalo, N.Y., is part of the highly regarded class that signed with Virginia last month. (It also includes 6-9 James Johnson, 6-6 Joe Harris, 6-4 K.T. Harrell and 6-7 Akil Mitchell.)
In Western New York, the young season’s most highly anticipated high school showdown was Wednesday night. Regan starred as Nichols knocked off perennial power Niagara Falls.
The Buffalo News has an excellent report on the game, including video (alas, it’s not Scorsese quality) of a Regan dunk.
