Holden was a top-20 scorer in the country last season, averaging 20.1 points per game for the Raiders on 49.7% shooting from the field. He also averaged 7.1 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game in addition to his scoring stats.
Holden’s outstanding play helped Wright State reach the NCAA Tournament First Four earlier this year. The Raiders defeated Bryant 93-82 in a battle of No. 16 seeds, with Holden scoring 37 points and grabbing 11 rebounds.
Holden has two years of collegiate eligibility remaining.
