BENJY TAYLOR EARNS MID-SEASON HONORS

BOSTON, MA  -- Hawaii's Benjy Taylor earns the Hugh Durham award mid-season coaching honors. 

At 12-4, Hawai’i enters the new year with the most non-conference victories in program history and the most of any Big West team this season. The 'Bows posted wins over three BCS teams, knocking off Colorado, Nebraska and Pittsburgh. 

Hawai’i, which was picked fifth in the media’s Big West preseason poll released in October, made a coaching change just prior to the start of the season. On Oct. 28 Gib Arnold was releaved of his coaching duties and Taylor was named acting head coach on Oct. 31. Taylor served as the associate coach the previous four seasons.

The Hugh Durham Award is given annually to the nation's top mid-major coach. The award is named in honor of Hugh Durham who had retired at the end of the 2004-05 season. Durham is one of just twelve coaches to have led two different programs to the NCAA Final Four (Florida State in 1972 and Georgia in 1983). He is the only coach among that group to have led both schools to their lone Final Four appearance.

The recipient of the 2015 Durham award will be announced at the CollegeInsider.com Awards Banquet on April 3 in Indianapolis, site of the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship.
