He graduated third all-time in career assists and sixth all-time in career scoring at the school.

 

A prep star at Harmony Community School (Cincinnati, OH), Holloway averaged 14 points and 7 assists as a senior, leading the team to a 28-2 record and the quarterfinals of the National Prep Championship.

 

The previous season, he averaged 20 points, 6 assists, and 6 steals for Hempstead High School (NY), when he was named to the All-State Class AA Team.
