Cheshire Phoenix are delighted to announce the signing of Guard, Cam Holden, following a spectacular year with the Towson Tigers.
A tenacious passer and pure playmaker, Holden offers high ball IQ to help facilitate our offence.
Often used as a ‘Point Forward’ at Towson, the 6”5 guard is unselfish in decision-making and knows how to spread the ball effectively to his teammates (averaged 4.83 APG last season).
Holden became the second player in program history to record a triple-double for Towson (24 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists), exemplifying his ability to control the tempo of games and make an impact on both sides of the court.
The 23-year old also achieved first team all-CAA honors and named in his conference’s all-defensive team.
Holden’s former head coach, Pat Skerry, said:
“Holden played with a broken jaw last year. Not a lot of guys will do that. He’s not a guy who worries about load management, he just goes.
“Cam Holden is by far the highest IQ guy I have been around. He sees a lot of stuff sometimes we miss as coaches.”
Holden’s versatility and determination offers him plenty of opportunity to make his mark in the British Basketball League as he looks to leave his own mark in his first year at professional level.

“I am very excited to start my professional career in the BBL and to be part of the Cheshire Phoenix. I believe that coach Ben and I both have the same vision for the club and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity not to play for a coach like him.
I can’t wait to go out there, compete for this club and give it my all with my teammates on the court!”
[Ben Thomas, Cheshire Phoenix’s Head Coach, said: ]
“I am really excited about Cam joining the Phoenix, we really believe he is one of the most unique players we have signed. His career in the NCAA took a big swing last season where he started playing at Point Guard and did a really great job.
With his size and ability to play four different positions on the floor, it makes him a nightmare for the opposition and we are looking forward to utilizing that to win games next season.”
