BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Ole Miss junior Murphy Holloway has been named the Southeastern Conference Player of the Week after helping the Rebels to wins over TCU and Miami (Fla.).
The 6-foot-7, 240-pound forward from Irmo, S.C., averaged 16.5 points and 10.5 rebounds in those two games and is one of only two league players averaging a double-double so far this season.
Holloway poured in a season-high 20 points to go with four rebounds and two steals in an 80-69 win over TCU that clinched third place for Ole Miss at the U.S. Virgin Islands Paradise Jam. He scored 13 points and tied a season high with 17 boards in an overtime win over previously unbeaten Miami. It was his second double-double of the year and the 16th of his career, which ranks second among active SEC players.
He is the first Rebel to receive a weekly award from the conference since Chris Warren was named player of the week on March 8, 2010. Holloway was a two-time SEC freshman of the week selection in 2008-09.
Ole Miss will travel to DePaul on Thursday as part of the Big East/SEC Challenge, followed by another big road game at Penn State on Sunday.
