April 5, 2019

MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- Rapolas Ivanauskas of Colgate is the 2018-19 recipient of the Riley Wallace Award, given annually to the top transfer in Division I college basketball. 
Ivanauskas poured in 15.9 points per game and snagged 7.8 rebounds per game to earn Patriot League Player of the Year honors during his first year eligible to play for the Raiders after one season at Northwestern. 
He helped Colgate to a school-record 24 victories in the first 20-win season in program history. The Raiders shared the Patriot regular season crown and won the tournament to return to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1996. 
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.
