Favorite Muskies of the last 10 seasons - Tu Holloway

Tu Holloway's last year at Xavier was 2012 so we all remember the greatness of #52.  When a guy is a part of 4 tournament appearances out of 4 years, that speaks for itself. Tu was A-10 Player of the Year his Junior year and got snubbed in earning the same reward his Senior year (Andrew Nicholson of St. Bonaventure won).

His stats were some of the best in school history; 6th all-time in scoring, 3rd in assists; best career FT% of all time at 85.2%, and most career FTs made.

Of course we all remember Tu (26 pts) and Jordan Crawford (32 pts) fighting to the end against Kansas State in the 2010 Sweet 16...my personal favorite memory of Tu though was the Xavier/Purdue game at Cintas Center his Senior year.  The Muskies were playing awful, down big all game. They were down 19 points with less than 11 minutes to go in the 2nd half, seemingly throwing in the towel when Tu took them on a furious comeback. He hit three straights three-pointers in the last 2 minutes of the game en route to beating Robbie Hummel and the Boilermakers.

Thanks for 4 great seasons at XU, Tu!

(if you're scoring at home, 4 of the 5 "Favorite Muskies of the last 10 seasons" have been named - Jason Love, Brian Thornton, Justin Cage, and Tu Holloway....stay tuned for the last Muskie!)
