Tigers Land Two of Knoxville’s Finest


Darrian Jones took over the program at Hiwassee College a few short years ago and decided to have an East Tennessee flavor to his roster.

A native of Alcoa, Jones helped lead the Tigers to the national tournament in their first year in the USCAA after many years as a junior college.

Jones spent the winter combing the Knoxville High Schools and for his effort she landed two incoming recruits which should help his program in the coming years.

Linwood Holloway (Knoxville Central) a 1,000 point scorer for the Bobcats will take his game down to Madisonville. Holloway is a solid outside shooter who brings energy to the defensive side of the floor.

Devin Jackson (Knoxville West) is one the best shooter in the area and he will be launching them for the Tigers next season. Jackson can play either guard spot and should compete for playing timely right off the bat.
