While the university disclosed that an MRI performed on Monday showed a a tear of the anterior talofibular ligament, Holloway issued a statement on Tuesday, saying he was feeling better.

``I’m a positive person so right now I’m trying to stay positive,″ Holloway said. ``I’m just going to keep working as hard as possible. My mind is at a crossroads. I don’t want my senior year to end like this, so I’m doing all I can to stay positive and work on getting ready to play.″

Holloway, who converted a full-court driving layup on Friday to give Seton Hall a 72-71 overtime victory over Oregon, sprained his ankle in the first half of a 67-65 overtime defeat of Temple in the second round Sunday.

The senior continues to be treated with ice and electric stimulation. He also is wearing a compression boot.

Senior guard Rimas Kaukenas sat out practice on Tuesday because of a possible strep throat. Results of the test will be known Thursday afternoon. Kaukenas could practice again Wednesday.
