Holloway injured, season likely finished

7'0 University of Louisville commit Clarence Holloway will likely miss the remainder of the season due to injury.

For the second season in a row, 7'0 Clarence Holloway's season will likely end on the disabled list.

Holloway, the University of Louisville's first commitment from the class of 2005, will likely miss the remainder of the season because of torn ligaments in his wrist.

"He got hacked a few games ago on the wrist," Harlan head coach Dennis Holmes said. "At first he tried to play on it but it was a handicap to him. The doctors said the ligaments are torn. I don't anticipate him back the rest of the season."

Holmes indicated that the course of action to fix the wrist was still undetermined and that surgery remained an option.

Before he went down, Harlan was 10-9 on the season and Holloway was averaging 13 points, 14 rebounds, and 6 blocks per game.

"He was doing a heck of a job for us before he got hurt," Holmes said. "We were on a seven game winning streak at one point."

Harlan will finish up the regular season next week and are still hopefull to get 6'7 Jeremiah Bryant ruled eligible in time for the playoffs. Bryant's status is still pending following a trasfer to Harlan this season.

Holloway is expected to be ready for the AAU basketball season later this spring, though Holmes was unsure what team he'd suit up for.
