COLUMBIA -- South Carolina head coach Darrin Horn announced the addition of Murphy Holloway, a former Dutch Fork High star, to the men's basketball team as a walk-on.
Holloway, who spent two seasons at Ole Miss, will sit out the upcoming season due to NCAA transfer rules. He will be eligible to play during the 2011-12 season as a redshirt-junior. Holloway will not receive any athletic department financial assistance from USC during the coming academic year.
Holloway ranked fifth in the SEC in rebounding and eighth in steals (1.5 spg) last season, while he finished sixth among league players with eight double-doubles. As a sophomore, he averaged 10.1 points and a team-best 7.6 rebounds, starting 30 of 34 contests.
In two seasons at Ole Miss, Holloway amassed 606 career points, 464 rebounds, 86 steals and 33 blocks. He played in 65 games with 47 starts.
