BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Ole Miss forward Murphy Holloway has been named the Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week, the league office announced Monday.
The Irmo, S.C., native produced a monster game against Florida A&M this past Monday, as he posted season highs with
15 points and 16 rebounds in the 86-63 win. It marked the first double-double by a Rebel this year. His 16 boards, the most by an Ole Miss player this season, helped the Rebels out-rebound the Rattlers by 25,47-22. The 6-foot-7 power forward also added three steals, two assists and a blocked shot in the contest.
Holloway is the first Rebel to earn a weekly honor from the conference office this season. Chris Warren was a three-time SEC Freshman of the Week selection a year ago.
Ole Miss takes on Southern Miss on Tuesday at 7 p.m. in a neutral-site contest at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Miss
