FameRank: 4

"Riley Wallace" was a men's basketball coach at the University of Hawaii at Manoa/University of Hawaii. When Wallace took over the program in 1987, it had suffered through four-straight losing seasons, including a combined 11-43 mark during the latter two years. He guided Hawaii to nine of its 12 all-time 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 were 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.

Wallace announced his resignation following the end of the 2006-'07 season on December 29, 2006.

I made a gesture coming out of my huddle. And he wanted it. He likes television.

They'll be in town before we get there. So it's almost like we're making another (road) trip.

The worst part about it is that payback game. And when you don't get a TV game, it doesn't feel worth it.

I'm embarrassed that you had to watch that and I'm embarrassed that we performed like that. You've got to give Nevada credit. I guess we stirred them up a little bit beating them at our place.

I was pleased with the last half of the second half. The first half was a carry over from Nevada.

We'll worry about that when it comes around. I don't know much about them right now.

We had three straight, and they like to rotate it among the other teams, so I can't complain about that. But the reason why you want to be a part of it is to get the (television) exposure. It was worth it for us the last three years because we got the exposure.

We're going to have to get better on the inside presence because that relieves the pressure so guys can get their outside shots.

Conditioning is such a key on the road, especially in altitude like (Reno and Logan). We let it affect us against Nevada. We can't do it again.
