Coastal Carolina junior guard Desmond Holloway has been selected as the Big South Conference Choice Hotels Men’s Basketball Player of the Week the conference office announced Monday.
Holloway averaged 19.0 points, 11.0 rebounds, 3.0 steals and 2.0 assists in leading the Chanticleers to two wins last week. In Coastal’s 77-71 win over second-place Liberty, Holloway had 16 points, seven rebounds and a career-high five steals.
He then turned in his third double-double of the season with 22 points and a career-high 15 boards to help Coastal to a 99-86 win over VMI. The Indianapolis, Ind., also made a career-best 10-of-12 free throws against the Keydets.
Holloway’s performance helped the Chants extend their win streak to a Big South-record 20 games, which is currently the second-longest in the nation behind top-ranked Ohio State.
Coastal returns to action Thursday night at 7 p.m. when the Chanticleers travel to Clinton, S.C., to take on Presbyterian from the Templeton Center.
