In a battle for top-dog in the CAAC Blue, the East Lansing boy's basketball team defeated Holt, 70-66, at home on Friday night. East Lansing star forward Brandon Johns was poked in the eye in the second quarter, but battled back to deliver a performance for the ages in the second half. Johns finished with a game-high 33 points (26 in the second half), 11 rebounds (now over 500 mark for career), six blocks, and four steals to lead the Trojans to victory.
