Tyler Gallo

On Wednesday evening, it was announced that senior Holly Forbes has transferred to Tennessee Martin, per a press release from the team.

Forbes, a JuCo product from Mineral Area College in Missouri, spent her junior and senior seasons as a Colonial and entered the portal as a graduate transfer in mid-March.

Forbes, who hails from Bonne Terre, Missouri, started all 47 games she played at Robert Morris, averaging 5.3 points and 4.9 rebounds, including averaging 6.3 points and 4.5 rebounds during the 2020-21 season. She recorded 234 rebounds during her time as a Colonial and 157 during her junior season.

She scored a career-high 16 points against Purdue Fort Wayne on February 20, sealing back-to-back double-digit performances to close out the season as Robert Morris played to a 4-12 record in their inaugural Horizon League season.

Forbes is a physical presence down low and a rebounding machine, which will be a nice addition to a Tennessee Martin team that played to a 22-6 record overall and a 17-2 record, winning the regular-season championship of the Ohio Valley Conference but falling in the conference tournament to Belmont. They went 2-1 in the WNIT following their conference tournament loss.
