Prep boys basketball: Manatee hires Troy Bellamy

Manatee has hired Troy Bellamy as its new boys basketball coach, athletic director Joe Kinnan announced Monday.
Bellamy replaces Randy Smith, who stepped down after three seasons.
A Sarasota graduate, Bellamy recently worked under Stefan Gates at Cardinal Mooney, and helped the Cougars reach the Class 3A-Region 3 championship game.
"Hopefully with a renewed emphasis on tough defense and fundamentals," Kinnan said, "Manatee's basketball team will return to a competitive level under Troy's leadership."
