Sophomore Tommy Holiday delivered a career performance for the Concordia University Texas men's basketball team. The Madisonville High School graduate finished with 13 points and a career-high 13 rebounds while playing a career-high 37 minutes during a loss to the University of the Ozarks.

He recorded the first double-double of his college career and led all players from both teams in rebounds. He scored in double figures in his third consecutive game, also a career feat.

Through 12 games, all of which he started, Holiday averaged a team-best 6.8 rebounds per game, which ranked seventh in the American Southwest Conference entering Thursday's play.

He led the team in blocked shots, and his 10.1 scoring average was third on the squad.
