Wallace Expected To Be Released From Hospital On Wednesday

(Honolulu-AP) -- University of Hawaii basketball coach Riley Wallace is expected to be released from a Las Vegas hospital on Wednesday.

The 60-year-old Wallace remains in the intensive care unit at University Medical Center in Las Vegas following brain surgery Friday.

Hospital spokesman Rick Plummer says Wallace should be able to function normally and there are no long-term implications from the surgery. Wallace had two subdural hematomas on the left side of his brain removed during the two-hour procedure.

A hematoma is the bleeding in the brain that produces pressure on the skull. Wallace is entering his 16th season this year as the Rainbow Warriors coach.
