ABOUT THE AWARD

The Gene Bartow Award is presented annually to a current or former coach for his contributions to the game. It measures a coach’s win-loss record but also the impact he’s made on his players, school and community.
 
It’s name in honor of a legendary coach who compiled a 647-353 record, led Memphis State to the 1973 national title game, steered UCLA to the Final Four and started the University of Alabama-Birmingham program from scratch, building it into a postseason regular.
 
Bartow won four Sun Belt tournament and three regular season titles during his 17 years at UAB, leading the program to a 350-193 record and seven consecutive NCAA tournament appearances. 
 
He passed away in 2012 at age 81, following a two-year battle with stomach cancer.
 
The recipient of the 2016 Gene Bartow Award will be announced on April 1 at the CollegeInsider.com Awards Presentation in Houston Texas, site of the Men's NCAA Basketball Championship.
