The Holt posse, in mid-season form, were ready for top contender in the Blue Division, Lansing Eastern.
The Rams led by double-digits in the third quarter, but Eastern started clawing back. It was no quit in Dontray Garrett and the Quakers were down six.
Then, Dray Detmond said, 'hop on my back.' He scored 23 in the second half alone, and 26 total in the game. The Holt lead was down to just two.
But in the fourth, the Rams heated up with a nifty no-look by Drew Stavis-Check to Colin Jones. It was two of his 14 points.
Then, Donquall Jackson got busy. He was running the point, finding a wide-open Tyrell Williams.
And they also had a little defense, as Jackson freed up Williams again.
Jackson led the way, and threw in 22 points of his own. It was a statement win for Holt, 67-59. We will see these two teams battling for the Blue title, all season long.
