Kory Holden (Men's Basketball) Earns National 5 & 10 Athlete of the Week Honors for Jan. 25

NEWARK, Del. (Jan. 25, 2015) -- University of Delaware men's basketball standout freshman Kory Holden is the National 5 & 10 Athlete of the Week for the period ending Jan. 25, 2015.

Holden, a point guard from Salisbury, Md. (James Bennett HS) led the Blue Hens to a 1-1 week, including a thriling 84-80 comeback victory over league-leading William & Mary on Wednesday night.

A communications major, Holden was also honored by the Colonial Athletic Association as this week's CAA Rookie of the Week. He earned the honor for the second time in three weeks and for the third time this season.

In the comeback win over William & Mary, Holden led Delaware's second-half charge as scored 20 of his points 24 points in the second half, dished out a career-high nine assists, connected on 9 of 13 shots from the field, drained 6 of 8 free throws, and committed just one turnover to lead the way. He was one of four Blue Hens to score in double figures.

In a 94-82 setback at Elon on Saturday, Holden scored 12 points and dished out five assists in 29 minutes of action.

For the season, Holden leads the team with 81 assists (5.4 per game), ranks No. 2 in scoring (13.4 points per game) and steals (12), and is shooting 74.3 percent from the foul line while connecting on 12 three-pointers.

Delaware (4-15, 3-5 CAA) will continue action this week at James Madison (Jan. 28) and at home vs. College of Charleston (Jan. 31).
