Alcorn State University head basketball coach Luther Riley’s peers felt that he was good enough to represent them.

The NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee and the National Association of Basketball Coaches has extended an invitation to Riley to serve on the Regional Advisory committee as the representative of the Southwestern Athletic Conference for the 2014-2015 season.

Riley’s name appeared on one of 32 ballots that will be used by the basketball committee during the selection, seeding and bracketing process and gives the NABC a voice in the selection room.

Riley felt great about his nomination and plans to take the position.

“I am honored that my colleagues across the conference and nation thought enough of me to have me represent the SWAC. I am honored and humbled by the nomination and it’s fitting to accept this opportunity.”

There are three ballots that are submitted online. The deadlines will be on January 9th, February 6th and March 6th. All ballots are confidential.
