Former Indiana Hoosier Emmitt Holt has reportedly found a new home at Providence.
Holt spent the past season at a junior college following his dismissal from the Indiana program last summer.

Holt was dismissed after he was cited for underage possession of alcohol last August, nearly a year after he struck teammate Devin Davis with his car while driving after he had been drinking. Davis was severely injured and missed the entirety of the 2014-15 season.
Holt was one of three players dismissed by head coach Tom Crean during the 2015 offseason, along with Davis and Hanner Mosquera-Perea.
Indiana won the Big Ten regular-season championship this past season and advanced to the Sweet Sixteen. Providence won 24 games and finished fourth in a competitive Big East, earning a No. 9 seed and advancing to the Round of 32, losing to the same team that ended up ousting Indiana, eventual national runner-up North Carolina.
