IOWA CITY, Ia. – Wade Lookingbill won the first Chris Street Award in 1993, months after the Hawkeyes’ standout junior forward died in an automobile accident.
Lookingill and the other winners of the award, presented to a “Hawkeye player who best exemplifies the spirit, enthusiasm and intensity of Chris Street,” were recognized at halftime of Saturday’s game with Wisconsin.
A video tribute to Street was also shown Saturday, the 20th anniversar
y of Street’s passing.
“This was Chris’ type of game,” Lookingbill said. “This is where he would have shined.”
Other winners on hand were three-time winner Jess Settles, Jim Bartels, Jason Bauer, Ryan Luehrsmann, Duez Henderson, Jeff Horner and Adam Haluska. Retired trainer, John Streif, another winner, was also recognized.
“This brings back a lot of memories,” Lookingbill said. “A few tears of sadness. But overall, a great night.”
