Marquise Holloman, his brother Tre Holloman and their mother Crystal Flint have accomplished quite a bit in recent years.
Marquise Holloman, a 6’4” guard who led Minneapolis North to capture two Class A boys’ basketball championships in 2016 and 2017 under Hall of Fame coach Larry McKenzie, will play at Mont Mary University, a NCAA Division III school in Wisconsin, after two years at North Dakota State College of Science (NDSCS).
Marquise was a starter on both championship teams and spent three years at NDSCS, including one season as a redshirt.
Tre Holloman, a 6’3” junior guard for Cretin-Derham Hall, has developed into one of the state’s top point guards after three productive seasons competing at the varsity level.
After playing sparingly as a seventh grader at Minneapolis North, he averaged 10.5 points in his first full season (2017-2018) as varsity player at Minneapolis North.
At the conclusion of his eighth-grade year, he transferred to Cretin-Derham Hall and duplicated his scoring average from the previous year (2018-2019). He followed that with a 10.8 per game average as a sophomore this past season.
Crystal Flint established quite a path for her sons to follow. She came to the University of Minnesota in 1989 on a girls’ basketball scholarship as a 5’9” forward with outstanding athletic ability after an outstanding career that included a selection to The Boston Globe All-Scholastic Team while playing for South Boston High School.
Flint’s collegiate career culminated with her leading the Gophers to their first-ever NCAA tournament that included an upset of Notre Dame in 1994.
After graduation she spent three years (1997-2000) as head coach at Concordia University-St. Paul and later became one of the state’s top referee officials. She coached at Minneapolis North from 2015-2018 and is currently in her third year as Cretin-Derham Hall’s leader.
Marquise Hollman, Tre Holloman and Crystal Flint are definitely making their mark. There is definitely more to come from this basketball family.
