        SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — Valerie King of the University of Cincinnati and Cain Doliboa of Wright State, a Springboro High graduate, will receive the Steitz Award as the nation's best collegiate 3-point shooters, the Basketball Hall of Fame announced today.

        King, a sophomore, hit 43 percent of her 3-point attempts, sinking 101 of 235 in 32 games.

        Doliboa, a senior transfer from Dayton, hit 47.9 percent of his 3-point attempts, sinking sank 104 of 217 in 28 games.

        To be eligible for the award, players must average at least three 3-point goals a game during the season.

        The award is named in honor of Hall of Famer Edward S. Steitz, a longtime athletic director at Springfield College, who as head of the rules committee was responsible for making the 3-point shot part of the college game.
