Holloway Transferring Back To Ole Miss
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — A rough week for South Carolina basketball
coach Darrin Horn has gotten even rougher with the news that
coveted transfer Murphy Holloway was granted a release with the
hopes of returning to Ole Miss.
Horn announced the move Friday. Holloway, a 6-foot-7 forward who
joined the Gamecocks from Ole Miss last year, talked with Horn on
Wednesday about his desire go back to the Rebels.
Horn says Holloway was granted his release. Holloway sat out
this season per NCAA transfer rules.
Holloway’s move follows the departures of sophomore shooting
guards Ramon Galloway and Stephen Spinella.
Horn’s leading scorer last season, point guard Bruce Ellington,
announced plans to play football next fall for the Gamecocks before
rejoining the basketball team.
