UH CIRCLE OF HONOR ADDS THREE

The University of Hawaii Sports Circle of Honor added three new members on Saturday, Feb. 25, 2017. Former UH men’s basketball coach Riley Wallace, local broadcast legend Jim Leahey and all-time Rainbow Warrior basketball great Tony Davis were honored during halftime of the Hawaii-Cal State Fullerton game at the Stan Sheriff Center.

Wallace won 334 games in his 20 seasons as the Rainbow Warriors’ head coach – the most in program history. He led his teams to nine postseason appearances, including three bids to the NCAA Tournament.

Leahey is renowned as the longtime voice of University of Hawaii athletics, having broadcast thousands of UH contests in more than four decades. He is currently ESPN 1420’s play-by-play announcer (with Scott Robbs) for UH baseball.

Davis played two seasons for UH in the late 1950s before being drafted by the NBA’s New York Knicks. He still holds the program’s single-game scoring record (45).
