The University of Manitoba Bison men’s basketball team has recruited guard Michael Holloway for the upcoming 2013-14 season.
The soon-to-be 24-year-old comes from Decatur, GA where he played for Valdosta State University.
Holloway is a 6’1”, 180 lbs. guard who played two seasons at NCAA Division II while in Georgia. The Decatur native averaged 11.3 points per game (ppg) with 3.0 assists per game (apg) with Valdosta State Blazers in 2011-12.
“We are very excited to be adding Michael to our roster. With the loss of several veteran players due to graduation this past year, he will contribute right away and provide an experience and dynamic scoring ability,” said head coach Kirby Schepp.
“Michael can play both on and off the ball very well and fits perfectly in our up-tempo open court style of play. He is an outstanding athlete and high character person that will be a great addition to the Bisons.”
Prior to Valdosta, Holloway played at Patterson prep school and averaged 22.5 ppg and 4.1 apg in 2008-09.
It’s not the first time Bisons head coach Kirby Schepp has looked to Georgia to recruit. In 2011, he brought up Stephan Walton from Atlanta to share captain duties.
