Head coach Rob Smith embraced the challenge of molding a young team, and they kept it close with mighty Holt.
The Trojans led by one at half, but the eigth ranked Rams came charging in the fourth. Gritty defense by Tara Lierman forced a jump ball under the East Lansing basket.
And the Trojans could not find an answer for their senior Anthony, who had 15 points.
Holt remained undefeated, and also among the top 10 in the state, after this 58-44 romp.
