COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Todd Holloway, who played more
minutes than any player in Texas A&M basketball history and still
holds the record for career steals in conference play, has died.
Holloway, 39, died of a heart attack Wednesday in his hometown
of Albany, N.Y., the university said in a news release.
Holloway played at A&M from 1984-1987 and was a member of the
1984 All-Southwest Conference team and of the 1986 SWC championship
He played in 119 games, starting in 112 for a total of 4,071
minutes. His record 116 steals in conference play still stands.
"Todd was one of the greatest competitors I ever coached,"
said former A&M coach Shelby Metcalf. "Everybody on the team
really liked him and he was very popular around campus."
"He probably won more games for us in the last 10 seconds than
anyone else on the team."
The former guard also is ranked in the top 10 in school history
in three other categories. He's second in steals with 208, fourth
in assists with 491 and ninth in points with 1,331.
He is survived by two sons, Tayon, 20, and Keyshaun, 12.
His funeral is scheduled for 1 p.m. Tuesday in Albany.
