Junior Reese Holliday Departing Rockets’ Hoop Program
TOLEDO, OH - Junior forward Reese Holliday (Kansas City, KS) has decided to leave the Toledo men's basketball program to attend to personal matters back home, Head Coach Tod Kowalczyk announced today.
A three-year letterwinner for the Rockets, Holliday averaged 7.8 ppg and 4.6 rpg coming off the bench to help Toledo finish in a first-place tie in the MAC West Division this past season.
"I enjoyed playing in front of our great fans and the community support we received was something I'll never forget," Holliday said. "My three years as a Rocket was a great experience with a lot of ups and downs - from winning four games my first season to being West Division champions this year. Some of the best memories of my life came in Toledo."
Kowalczyk said, "I'm very appreciative of Reese's contributions and how he helped build our program from the ground up. Reese is one of the toughest players I've ever coached, and I wish him all the best in the future."
As a freshman, Holliday started 21 of 23 games and led UT with 10.5 ppg while ranking second with 6.6 rpg. In 2011-12, he averaged 7.1 ppg and was second on the team in rebounding for a second-straight season with 5.8 rpg.
