John Holloran, George Washington's senior guard, was the only unanimous first-team choice in voting for The Washington Post's 1977 All-Metropolitan College Basketball Team.
Holloran, a 6-foot-1 product of Washington's St. John's High, was named first-team on all 11 ballots cast by members of The Post's sport staff. Votes were calculated on the basis of three for first team, two for second team and one for honorable mention.
Holloran's 21.4 season average and his 26.4 output in games against area competition made him a runaway on a first team that did not include a center or big forward.
The rest of the first-team balleting was close. Howard forward Gerald Glover, Maryland guard Brad Davis and Catholic U. guard Glenn Kolonics each had 25 points, one more then Georgetown forward Al Dutch.
American U. forward Clavin Brown and GW forward Les Anderson led the second-team balloting with 23 points each, one more than Georgetown's Derrick Jackson. Rounding cut the second team was Maryland forward Steve Sheppard and Navy forward Kevin Sinnett.
The format for the voting was without preference to position. Participating in the voting were Post staff members Mark Asher, Paul Attner, Thomas Boswell, Russell Carter, David Cole, Richard Darcey, Kenneth Denlinger, Ron Grover, Donald Huff, Nancy Scannell and Leonard Shapiro.
