No question that Holmes has not had the career anticipated but the primary reason has been injury. She was the Big 12 Freshman of the Year and first team All Conference in 2017 before her injury and to date has not been able to recover to her pre-injury level of play.

She still has a year of eligibility left. Let's wait until after her senior to label her career. But I will never consider it a bust. Just as I don't consider Maddie Manning's career a bust even though injury kept her from coming close to achieving what was anticipated becoming only a honorable mention all conference player.

Injury unfortunately ruins a lot of careers.
