“As the new head coach for St. Vincent’s women’s basketball I plan to rebuild the program in a way that’ll make the young women love the game of basketball on the court and also build character outside of the game.” Bullard said. “Basketball is a key to many opportunities in life. I want these young women to know that they are capable of anything and it could possibly start with a basketball!”
