2017 SKIP PROSSER AWARD

PHOENIX, AZ -- Wake Forest’s Danny Manning is the recipient of the 2017 Skip Prosser Man of the Year award.

Manning led Wake Forest to the NCAA Tournament and its most wins (19) since the 2009-10 season. The Demon Deacons posted four wins over NCAA Tournament teams, including a win over No. 8 Louisville, which was the highest ranked win of the Manning era.

This season the Demon Deacons set school records for free throw percentage (77.8) and three-point field goals (268). They also posted the third most points in program history (2,733) and the second fewest turnovers (11.8 per game).

“Coach Manning has done a terrific job of bringing Wake Forest basketball back into the conversation in the ACC,” said CollegeInsider.com’s Angela Lento. “He’s an excellent coach and great person.”.

Named after the late Skip Prosser, who died suddenly in 2007 while the head coach at Wake Forest, the award is presented annually to those who not only achieve success on the basketball court but who also display moral integrity off of it as well. 

Prosser posted a career record of 291-146 in 14 seasons as a head coach at Loyola, Xavier and Wake Forest. During his time at Wake, Prosser’s teams averaged 21 wins per season.
