Catching Up With: Jacy Holloway
AMES, Iowa-Jacy Holloway remembers the play, but he wants to forget it. Visions of UCLA's Cameron Dollar lofting a high-arcing shot over the outstretched arm of teammate Kelvin Cato pop into his mind every now and then. The basket gave the Bruins a last-second 74-73 overtime victory in the 1997 NCAA Regional Semifinal and ended Holloway's outstanding four-year career (1994-97) as a Cyclone. What Holloway focuses on more, however, is what happened mere seconds before Dollar's shot. It was Holloway's assignment to defend Dollar from base-line to base-line. His smothering defense kept him nose-to-nose with the Bruin until an apparent forearm-pushoff knocked Holloway to the floor and set Dollar free for the final shot.
