"That was just the program that I felt that I was comfortable with to this point," Holloway said. "The thing that brought me to it was the opportunity to come in and play as a freshman with Andrew Lavender leaving."
"They have a lot of NBA players too," he said. "I think they've had 14 pros in 14 years. I know they have one of the highest graduation rates in the country. I think they've graduated 73 straight players."
Holloway also cited his relationship with first year assistant coach Emmanuel "Book" Richardson as one of the reasons he opted to go with the Musketeers.
"I think my relationship with Book was one of the biggest parts for me," Holloway said. "I've known him since I was 11 years old. I used to play against him and then I played with him when I was 16 on the Gauchos."
