Position:
Video Coordinator

Antwuan Holloway brings more than five years of college basketball coaching experience into his position as the Illinois State men's basketball video coordinator, a position he acquired prior to the 2012-13 season.

Before beginning his career at Illinois State, Holloway spent two seasons as an assistant coach at UT Martin in Martin, Tenn. He was responsible for coordinating travel arrangements, exchanging film, scouting and recruiting. In 2011-12, Holloway coached Myles Taylor, who was the Ohio Valley Conference Freshman of the Year and member of the OVC All-Newcomer team.

During Holloway's 2010-11 debut season, he helped the Skyhawks win their first Ohio Valley Conference Tournament game in program history, while UT Martin tripled its win output from the previous year. The Skyhawks also earned a program-best eight adidas OVC Freshman of the Week honors, which marked just the third time that one university had that many mentions since the league began presenting the award in 1978-79.

Prior to his stint at UT Martin, Holloway was an assistant at Division II Nyack College in Nyack, NY for two seasons. His duties at Nyack included recruiting, conducting individual workouts, on-court coaching and breakdown sessions with players, advance scouting of opponents, scheduling future opponents and implementing a strength and conditioning plan for the team.

In Holloway's first season at Nyack, the Warriors made it to the NCCAA Tournament championship game, finishing as 2009 national runner-up. He coached two all-conference players, Stadford McLeod and Valiant Jones.

Before starting at Nyack, Holloway spent one season as an assistant coach at NAIA Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia, Ky. He helped the Blue Raider program to a national top-25 ranking while competing in the Mid-South Conference, known as one of the most competitive NAIA conferences in the country.

In a year of exceptional accomplishments, Lindsey Wilson defeated No. 1-ranked Mountain State University. Along with his duties as an assistant coach, Holloway also served as the head coach for Lindsey Wilson's junior varsity team.

Holloway began his head-coaching career as a student assistant at West Georgia, a Division II school located in Carrolton, Ga. He helped the team compile a 56-32 record in his three years, including a 23-7 season in 2004-05. During that year, the Braves were ranked as high as No. 2 in the nation and made the NCAA Tournament.

Holloway earned his master's degree in August 2009 from Duquesne University in sports leadership after graduating cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree with an emphasis in sport management from West Georgia in 2007. While at West Georgia, he was named Most Outstanding sports management major. He also was in the top-five percent of his class at South Cobb High School, and he played basketball and baseball.
