Holloway working at a frantic pace

Murphy Holloway doesn't slow down for a lot of things. In fact, no one has really witnessed him anything at a normal pace.
The always active 6-foot-7, 185-pound forward from Dutch Fork High School in Ermo, S.C. says only one person has seen him sit down for a long stretch of time.
"My mom has," Holloway said. "And it's probably when I'm sleeping."
Holloway certainly keeps defenses awake because is in constant motion on the basketball court. He sets the tone for the South Carolina Ravens 16 and under program. Holloway has been the team's most consistent big man in the spring.
"I just like to play that way. You have to get after it," Holloway said. "If you want to be the best, you have to play like one of the best."
A majority of his offense comes from second chance opportunities and offensive putbacks. Holloway said that makes up 65 percent of his offense. He doesn't plan on changing his regime either.
"If it doesn't kill you, keep doing it," Holloway said.
That mentality comes from his father Kevin Maddox, a former Arizona football player, Holloway said.
The Wildcats are one of the many schools jumping into the race for his services. Arizona is joined by Alabama, South Carolina, Clemson and DePaul. Holloway said he is in the listening stage of recruiting. Time is on his side and he is hoping that his play brings more suitors.
"This has been the best AAU season I've ever had," Holloway said. "Last year, I couldn't use my off hand and I couldn't really shoot the ball. But I'm doing those things now. I'm just getting better."
