South Dakota men’s basketball is pleased to announce the addition of Bostyn Holt to the 2023-24 roster. A native of Portland, Oregon, Holt transfers to USD after spending two seasons at Utah.
“We are excited to welcome Bostyn to South Dakota,” said USD head coach Eric Peterson. “He is extremely versatile on offense and defense. He can guard any position on the floor and rebounds at a high level. He will make an immediate impact in our program.”
This past year, Holt played in 24 games. He scored 47 points, brought down 39 rebounds, and had 12 assists for the Utes. The 6-7 guard shot nearly 46 percent from the floor and was at his best in two games against UCLA where he scored 15 points, pulled down 11 rebounds, and had four assists.
Before his stint at Utah, Holt played at Coffeyville Community College from 2019-21. He led the Red Ravens to a KJCCC Championship and an NJCAA Division I Championship with a 27-3 mark his sophomore season. He averaged 9.6 points and 6.5 rebounds per game while shooting 57 percent from the field. Holt reached double-figure scoring in 17 games and double-digit rebounding in four games. He scored a career-high 21 points and nine boards against Cloud County late in the season and had a double-double in the national championship game against Cowley County.
Holt is the son of Billy and Audrey Holt and will have two years of eligibility remaining to play for the Coyotes. He plans on pursuing his MBA while enrolled at South Dakota.
