Wolters a finalist for Lou Henson Award
"We're so proud of Nate and his many accomplishments, and the nomination
for the Lou Henson Award reminds us once again how special he is, and what he
has meant to our program," head coach Scott Nagy said. "This award holds even
more significance for me, because the Nagy family learned so much from Coach
Henson and his wife Mary. My dad played for coach and was his assistant
for 18 years, and I had the opportunity to coach under him as a very young
coach. We could never repay him for what he has done for us."
For the second straight year CollegeInsider.com teamed up with Point3 Basketball to promote the Lou Henson award "fan vote," which constitutes 33 percent of the final vote. Look for voting details at a later date.
The Lou Henson Award is presented annually to the top Mid-Major player in Division I college basketball. The award is named in honor of Lou Henson who retired after a spectacular coaching career that lasted 41 years. When he left the game in 2005 he ranked sixth all-time in career Division I wins with 779. He is the winningest coach at both Illinois and New Mexico State, and one of only 12 coaches in the history of the game to take two schools to the Final Four.
The 2013 Award will be presented at the CollegeInsider.com awards banquet in Atlanta, site of the men's NCAA Basketball Championship.
