SEATTLE, Wa (WSYR-TV) - Former Syracuse University basketball assistant coach Mike Hopkins was named Coach of the Year in the Pacific-12 Conference.
Hopkins has been with the University of Washington Huskies for just a year after spending 22 years with the Orange.
Coach Hopkins has the most wins for a first-year coach at UW since Marv Harshman finished 20-6 in the 1971-72 season.
Hop has transformed a team that went 9-22 last season to a sixth place finish in the Pac-12.
UW basketball is now 19-10 overall.
The Huskies' NCAA hopes hang on securing at least one win in the Pac-12 tournament.
UW takes on Oregon State Wednesday in their first matchup in the Pac-12 Tourney.
