Holmes Holds Off Dixie in Battle of Top 5 Teams
Alex Valentine - The River City News
Coming into their matchup Wednesday night, Holmes and Dixie were widely regarded as the third and fourth-ranked teams in the 9th region. The question was, who belonged in which spot?

Holmes answered that question by holding on to beat Dixie Heights on the road by a final score of 70-63. With the win, the Bulldogs improve to 19-5 on the season. The loss drops Dixie's season record to 17-6.

Holmes spotted Dixie nine early points, falling behind 9-0 in the first three minutes of the game. At that point, senior forward Rod Avery checked into the game for the first time.

His length and presence in the paint provided the immediate impact Holmes needed to match the Colonels’ size. Avery bolstered the paint all night for Holmes, finishing with 18 points and 9 rebounds.

“We were able to make some adjustments after falling behind early,” said Holmes head coach Mike Listerman. “It certainly wasn’t ideal to dig ourselves that hole, but we
made adjustments to compensate for Dixie’s size and length, especially after halftime.”
