ABOUT THE AWARD
The Riley Wallace award is presented annually to the top transfer in division I college basketball.
During his coaching career at Hawaii, Wallace welcomed many transfers into the program and became the winningest coach in Hawaii history. Wallace guided Hawaii to nine postseason appearances, including a school-record streak of four straight from 2001-04.
The Warriors appeared in the NCAA Tournament three times under Wallace and have been invited to the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) on six occasions. Prior to his arrival, the program had just one NCAA appearance and two trips to the NIT.
The recipient of the 2016 Riley Wallace Award will be announced on April 1 at the CollegeInsider.com Awards Presentation in Houston Texas, site of the Men's NCAA Basketball Championship.
