On a night when its Suburban East Conference-leading offense was held to a season low, Cretin-Derham Hall found other ways to get it done.

Holding the opponent to its season low, too, doesn’t hurt.

It wasn’t pretty, but Cretin-Derham Hall picked up a 45-35 road win Friday at Woodbury.

The host Royals led 22-16 at halftime and led the state’s top recruit per 247 Sports, point guard Tre Holloman, to four points at the break.

Fortunately for the Michigan State commit, he has the passing skills to match his scoring average that's near 20 points per game. He helped get others involved on the way to eclipsing 1,000 career assists in the process.

Per the Minnesota State High School League records book, Holloman surpassed Nicollet’s Riley Hulke’s career mark of 956 set in 2020.
