Gautier's Alexis Holloway signs with Alcorn State

GAUTIER, Mississippi -- Gautier High senior Alexis Holloway signed a basketball scholarship with Alcorn State University on Friday.

The 5-foot-10 point guard was averaging almost 21 points a game until tearing the ACL in her right knee last December, ending her season.

Despite the injury, Alcorn continued to recruit Holloway, who averaged 19 points, 8 rebounds, 4 blocked shots, 3 assists and 3 steals as a junior.

"The Alcorn State people always still talked to me and showed an interest in me playing there," Holloway said. "I love the campus up there. There's not much of a teacher/student ratio, but I like that. The coaches communicate well, the teammates are nice and everybody helps you out."

Gautier coach Fred Williams gave most of the credit to Holloway's parents.
