Kevin Holmes had a season-high 28 points and pulled down 12 rebounds in leading the Dunkirk Marauders (14-0, 10-0) to an impressive 67-37, Tuesday in non-league boys' high school basketball.
"Kevin has been feeling good the last couple of days," Dunkirk coach Jerome Moss said. "He came out and it showed. He came through with a big day. We need him to step up and score like he did tonight."
The Marauders set the tone early, jumping out to a 26-6 advantage.

"We were able to put some pressure on them right away," Moss said. "We were able to get some turnovers and get some buckets quickly."
In the second half, the Marauders outscored Oracle Charter, 32-21.
"We were just on our game," Moss said. "Everything is clicking. Oracle Charter was similar to Maritime. Their guards gave us trouble with speed, but we were able to settle down and play our game. We played how we wanted to play. The guys came out, knew what they wanted to do and they executed. It's important we play at the level we want to play."

Considering the inclement weather which hit the Dunkirk area Tuesday night, Moss was glad his team could do well in front of a big crowd.
"We want to thank everyone for coming out in such bad weather," Moss concluded. "It was great to see the support with the weather as bad as it was."
