SEATTLE – Lakes High boys basketball coach JoJo Rodriguez likes to say that guard Andrew Holloway plays his best in the biggest games.
Holloway proved Rodriguez right on Monday against Garfield High at the King Holiday Hoopfest.
Holloway led the Lancers rally that turned a 28-point third-quarter deficit into a 73-68 double-overtime win at Alaska Airlines Arena.
“He drives me crazy in the mediocre games,” Rodriguez said of Holloway, “but in the big games, the big moments, the dude always does it.”
Holloway scored all 20 of his points after halftime. He converted a three-point play with 1 minute, 24 seconds left that pulled Lakes even with the fifth-ranked Bulldogs, 55-55, for the first time in the game.
Garfield regained the lead moments later, but Dequam Walls sent the contest into overtime when his floated tied the score at 57 with eight seconds left in regulation.
