The George Mason recruit was named All-Met Boys Basketball Player of the year. How thrilled should George Mason fans be?
George Mason fans have had much reason to be excited for guard Patrick Holloway's debut in the green and gold after he led Paul VI High School to one of its best years in school history. Now they have another reason to look forward to his arrival on campus, he was named the All-Met Player of the Year by the Washington Post.
George Mason recruit saved his biggest performances for the season's biggest games, leading the No. 1 Panthers to a 35-3 record, their first Washington Catholic Athletic Conference championship, the City Title and a Virginia private schools championship. Made a buzzer-beating three-point shot to beat No. 1 DeMatha during the regular season and made the game-winning basket in the teams' rematch in the WCAC championship game. One of the region's best pure scorers, the 6-1 guard averaged 13.2 points and shot 35 percent from three-point range.
Holloway may be backed up on the George Mason depth chart behind guards such as Bryon Allen and Corey Edwards. However, if one or both players struggle for George Mason early on next season, don't be surprised if Holloway gets a lot of time on the floor as a freshman.
