Holt boys win, stay in CAAC Blue mix

By

HOLT

It wasn’t so long ago that Holt was looking more towards the state tournament than a CAAC Blue championship.

The Rams had fallen three games back of Grand Ledge with more than half of the league season gone, but nothing is a given in mid-Michigan’s toughest boys basketball conference.

Holt rebounded after an earlier loss to Okemos to down the Chiefs 62-48 on Friday night and remained one game back of the Comets.

“We’re right there again. If we can beat Jackson on Tuesday, at worst we’ll be playing for a share on Friday, so we’re right back in it,” Holt coach Matt Essell said. “We had to change out mindset a little bit. It just kind of turned out that Grand Ledge came back to us a little bit and now we’ve got that that we can shoot for also.”

“After the first couple losses, we really got the mindset that we need to come out and play because anybody can beat us,” Holt senior Tyrell Williams said after scoring 11 points in the win.

The first half was tight, with senior Romeell Dozier’s lone field goal giving Holt a 27-26 lead just before the halftime buzzer.

Okemos was having success with what helped them to a 55-50 home win over Holt on Jan. 17. Senior Edward Smith was effective again versus the Rams with 12 first-half points in the rematch.

But Holt opened up with a 12-2 run in the third quarter, getting easy baskets in transition after attempting 23 three-pointers in the Jan. 17 game.

The Rams also clamped down on the Chiefs, allowing just 21 second-half points and just five to Smith.

“We told them if we hold them to 50, we’ll feel pretty good,” Essell said. “That was a great defensive effort. Their bigs are really good. Edward Smith was really good tonight. We did a nice job.”

After the 12-2 spurt, Okemos was playing from behind for the remainder and got no closer than nine points. Holt senior guard Don’Quall Jackson made eight free throws to help finish the win off on his way to a team-high 15 points.

“Some of our mistakes started to add up,” Okemos coach Jeff Wonch said. “A little one here and one there and pretty soon you’ve got six or seven of them and it added up to 12 points for them.”

Freshman Jaron Faulds, recently inserted into the starting lineup, chipped in with 13 points for Holt. Senior Conner George had 11 points for Okemos.
