John Holland Earns AP All-America Recognition in Men's Basketball
Holland, a senior guard/forward, led the league in scoring for the second straight year, putting up 19.2 points per game and ranked 12th among rebounding leaders averaging 5.8 caroms per game. He is just the fourth player in America East's history to lead the conference in scoring in consecutive seasons, joining Taylor Coppenrath, Vin Baker and Reggie Lewis in the esteemed group.
A four-time All-America East selection including a first-team choice each of the last three years, Holland earned Reggie Lewis Most Outstanding Player honors at this year's America East Championship after leading the Terriers to their first league title since 2002. He averaged 20 points and 7.3 rebounds in the three tournament games and collected a double-double of 27 points and 11 boards in his team's comeback win over Stony Brook in the championship game. He scored a game-high 19 points in Boston U.'s first-round loss to top-seeded Kansas in the NCAA tournament.
Holland concludes his career ranked seventh on the league's all-time scoring list with 2,212 career points and 30th on the rebounding chart with 729 career boards.
