Coming off of a sophomore season in which he earned second team All-Southland Conference honors, Stephen F. Austin forward TJ Holyfield has been even better as a junior. Entering Tuesday’s game at Missouri, Holyfield was averaging 15.5 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.1 steals per game, shooting 57.9 percent from the field.

Holyfield’s athleticism was on display during the second half of Tuesday’s game, as he threw down a powerful one-handed dunk on a late to rotate Terrence Phillips.

Give Phillips credit for making an attempt to block Holyfield’s dunk, but given the difference in height anything less than a foul was not going to suffice.
