Hollis Price played four seasons on an Oklahoma team that won 111 games and lost just 26 times and never finished lower than third place in the Big 12 standings. The 2001-02 Sooner team advanced to the Final Four, just the fourth team in Oklahoma basketball history to do so.

The 6-1 two guard (shooting guard) from New Orleans led the Sooners in scoring his junior and senior seasons and was an All-American both seasons. Price averaged 16.5 points in the 2001-02 season and 18 points a game in 2002-03. His senior season, he was named AP Big 12 Player of the Year, and he finished third in the balloting for the coveted Wooden Award, one of the top prizes in college basketball.

Price ranks seventh on the career scoring list at Oklahoma with 1,821 points over four seasons. He holds the Oklahoma school record for the best free-throw percentage in a season (130 out of 140, a .929 percentage in 2002-03) and for a career (.861). His 241 made three-point shots and 615 three-point tries rank third in school history.

Price was not drafted by an NBA team, but he played professionally in Europe for eight seasons.

In May of 2014, he rejoined his head coach at Oklahoma, Kelvin Sampson, as director of player development for the University of Houston.
