Over the last few seasons he was named into All-Horizon League 2nd Team -11 and Horizon League All-Defensive Team -11. Moreover Eli Holman became an All-Horizon League Sixth Man of the Year -12.
Holman, who was undrafted, played with the Houston Rockets in the NBA Summer League, though he only saw action briefly in one game. With his size, athleticism and defensive capability, if he continues to develop overseas, it’s a good bet he’ll get another look in the NBA soon.
