Holloman Sounds Solid - Sep 4, 2013

Garrius
Holloman
There have been many changes at Plymouth Raiders during the close season as Head Coach Gavin Love completely revamps a roster that promised much last season but in the end didn't quite deliver.

One of those changes sees second year pro Garrius Holloman (198-F-89, college: Beth.-Cookman) arrive in the South-West fresh from a year in which he played in The NBL in New Zealand ending that season at Waikato Pistons where in 14 games he averaged 18.6ppg, 6.5rpg, 2.9apg and 1.6spg. EuroBasket caught up with the 6' 6" forward as he looked forward to joining The BBL and arriving in Plymouth.

Welcome To The British Basketball League. Do you know much about the league?

Hello, thank you so much I am glad be in this great League. I know very little about the BBL. I have been going on the website to learn more and more about the league. I also know the league is getting more talented every year. I am just happy to be playing here.

How about Plymouth Raiders? What do you know about them?

I am learning more each day about the club. The things I do know about the Plymouth Raiders is that Coach Love is a great coach to learn the game from. He knows the game and let's guys play. He doesn't have much patience if guys make bad decisions and turn the ball over, etc.

How did the deal to move to Plymouth come about?

The move to Plymouth was made when my agent elias.diamantopoulos.ed@gmail.com sent my New Zealand season and some college film to Coach Love and some other clubs. I read that Coach Love looked at a lot of other great players before making me his pick. Coach Love also said that he likes my game because I can play on the wing but can play the power forward if needed.

How excited about the opportunity were you?

When I got the paper work I was and still am lost for words. The reason for this feeling is, I just love to play basketball so, when an opportunity comes for me to play I am always excited.

Have you spoken with Coach Love?

Yes, I have spoken to Coach Love the very next day after I sent the papers back. He welcomed me and told me he is ready to get started.

What are your thoughts about coming to England?

I am ready to start a new journey this season in England. I haven't been so can't wait to see what it's like.

Have you always wanted to be a professional basketball player?

When I first started to know and learn the game I knew right then and there that I wanted to be a professional basketball player.

Your last two years at College were with Bethune-Cookman in the MEAC, what was that like?

My years at Bethune-Cookman was great. The MEAC was a lot more talented then most people thought. I had a lot of fun and learned a lot about myself and the game by playing in the MEAC. I had great coaching both years.

What did you take from your time at college in to the professional game?

My work ethic. Bethune-Cookman taught us we have to work for things we want out of life. Also when you get down don't stay there get back up and try again. That's why I think I am here today because I didn't stop working.

You didnt play immediately after leaving college in 2012, why was that?

I really couldn't tell you why I didn't get a job right after school. I did go to some camps and tryouts. I guess it just wasnt meant to be straight away.

Then in 2013 you signed pro in New Zealand, what was that experience like?

I believe playing in New Zealand for my rookie season was a great fit for me because, I got to adjust from the collage game to the Pro style of play a little slower. I had a great time there and it helped my game.

What was the standard like in New Zealand compared with college?

The NBL is a step or two up from the college game. So it's hard to compare the two.

What would you say are your best basketball attributes?

My best attributes is playing the game of basketball within itself. On the other hand having the best season in school history. that same year we won the regular season championship which was the first in school history since joined NCAA D1. Also the next year advancing to the MEAC Finals for the first time in school history.

What are you hoping you can bring to the Raiders?

I am hoping I can bring whatever Coach Love needs to help the team also be a good teammate on and off the court.

What are your personal goals for this season?

Help the team win a championship.

Holloman looks like being another exciting addition to The BBL and Raiders ranks and certainly has the pedigree, determination and ability to be a big success in the league.
