Career highlights and awards

Terrell "Tu" Holloway (born August 21, 1989) is an American professional basketball player. As a junior at Xavier, he was selected as the 2011 Atlantic 10 Conference player of the year and was named to several All-America teams in that 2010–11 season.

High school career

Holloway spent three years at Hempstead High School in Hempstead, New York, then transferred to Harmony Prep in Cincinnati. Holloway originally committed to Indiana University, but opted to re-open his commitment following the resignation of coach Kelvin Sampson, eventually choosing Xavier University.[1]

College career

Holloway was a part-time starter as a freshman, then became the starting point guard as a sophomore, playing alongside future NBA player Jordan Crawford. He averaged 12.1 points and 3.9 assists that year and helped the Musketeers to a 26-9 record and a share of the Atlantic 10 title.

Prior to his junior year, Holloway began using the nickname "Tu" exclusively.[2] The name change signalled a breakout year, as Holloway led the conference in assists (5.4 per game) and finished second in the league in scoring (19.7 points per game). He was selected as the 2011 Atlantic 10 Conference men's basketball player of the year as he led the Musketeers to another regular-season championship. Holloway was also the only player in NCAA Division I basketball to record two triple-doubles during the season.[3] Holloway also received national recognition as he was named a third-team All-American by both the Associated Press,[4] Fox Sports,[5] and Sporting News magazine.[6]

In December 2011, Holloway received press for his role during and after the game with rival Cincinnati that ended with a brawl between the teams. In a post game press conference, Holloway was quoted as saying "We've got a whole bunch of gangsters in the locker room. Not thugs, but tough guys on the court. And we went out there and zipped them up at the end of the game."[7]

Holloway finished his college career at Xavier as second most in assists and the sixth leading points scorer all time. During his time at Xavier he was known for his clutch ability and being cool and calm under pressure.

Professional career

After going undrafted in the 2012 NBA Draft, he signed on to play for the Toronto Raptors summer league team in July, 2012.[8]

On September 25, 2012, Holloway signed a contract with the Dallas Mavericks.[9] However, on October 2, he was waived by the Mavericks.[10]

On November 4, 2012, it was announced that Holloway would play for Aliağa Petkim in Turkey. He signed with the Leuven Bears of the Basketball League Belgium in June, 2013.[11] On February 16, 2014 Leuven and Holloway reached an mutual agreement to dissolve his contract.[12] Holloway averaged 17.3 points per game in 19 Ethias League games for Leuven.
