Stacy Hollowell enters his fourth season at the helm of Loyola in 2017.
Last year, Hollowell led the Wolf Pack to the second round of the SSAC Conference Tournament where the team advanced all the way to the semifinals despite being the eighth seed. In Hollowell’s second year at the helm, Loyola finished the 2015-16 season at 17-13 overall with a 10-8 mark in the SSAC.
Three members of the Loyola’s 2015-16 squad earned conference accolades for their work on the court with Johnny Griffin Jr. being named First Team All-Conference, Nick Parker grabbing Second Team All-Conference accolades and Tre’von Jasmine earning a spot on the SSAC All-Freshman squad.
In the classroom, three Wolf Pack men’s hoopers earned All-Academic accolades from the SSAC in 2015-16 while Jalen Gray and Nate Pierre were also placed on the Honors Court by the NABC.
Hollowell joined the Loyola staff after head coaching stints with the Qatar Youth National Team, LCC International University in Lithuania, and the Manama Sports Club in Bahrain. Along with running the youth team since 2009, he was an assistant coach for the Qatar National Team from 2003-2006 where the team participated in the 2006 FIBA World Championship and compiled an overall record of 111-56. The team also won four gold medals during his tenure.
At LCC International, Hollowell oversaw the program in its first two years of existence starting in 2007 where he led the team to playoff appearances in both seasons. Before joining LCC, in his only season with the Manama Sports Club, he led his squad to an appearance in the Championship series despite losing their best player. In 2006, he was contracted as an advanced scout for the Chinese National Team who went on to win a gold medal in the Asian Games.
As an assistant with Loyola, he was instrumental in one of the most successful campaigns in school history as the 2011-12 team finished the year with a 20-10 record and the Southern States Athletic Conference West Division title. The 20 wins were the most in a season since the 1947-48 team finished 21-9.
He has also helped the team achieve a great deal of success in the classroom. The Pack has received a NABC Team Academic Excellence Award the past two seasons and has been given an NAIA Scholar-Team award all four seasons Hollowell has been on board. The NAIA also awarded the team the Buffalo Funds Five Star Champions of Character Team award for the 2011-12 season.
Hollowell graduated from St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas in 2001 with a degree in economics. While in college, he served as a student assistant with the men’s basketball team. Following a one-year stint with Western Kentucky as a volunteer assistant coach, he came back to St. Edward’ s to serve as an assistant for one season in 2001.
He and his wife Nicole reside in New Orleans. Hollowell is the father of three children, Emma, Jett and Jax, and he has a stepson, Aaron Traub.
Lindsey joined the Wolf Pack after spending the 2016-17 season as a graduate assistant coach at NCAA DII St. Edward's University in his hometown of Austin, Texas. While with the Hilltoppers, Lindsey acted as the recruiting coordinator for the state of Texas while also assisting head coach Andre Cook with scouting reports and team practices. During his time at St. Edward's, Trey helped the Hilltoppers finish with a 17-15 overall record and the second highest scoring offense in the conference at 84.3 points per game.
"Trey is a great teacher of the game and does an excellent job evaluating and recruiting talent," said Hollowell. "We are very excited about the energy and enthusiasm that he will bring to our program."
Prior to taking his position on the coaching staff, Lindsey was two-year starter for the Hilltoppers, both of which he was named team captain. In two seasons, he started in all 60 games and averaged 8.2 points and 4.8 rebounds per outing.
The 6-6 forward returned to his home city of Austin in 2013 after having spent his first two years playing NCAA DI basketball at the University of Louisiana-Monroe. Trey appeared in 45 games for the Warhawks and made 14 starts during that span, highlighted by an 18-point performance against Arkansas-Little Rock during his sophomore season.
Before heading to Monroe, Lindsey was a three-year letterman at Bowie High School in Austin where he helped the Bulldogs capture two district championships and one regional crown during his tenure.
Trey graduated from St. Edward's in 2017 with a M.S. in Leadership and Change after earning his B.A. in Kinesiology at St. Edward's in 2015.
