    The Cardinals other commit playing in the event, 7-foot-1 Clarence Holloway from Chicago Harlan, helped lead the North to a Silver Medal finish this weekend.

    Holloway, who fouled out of two of the five games and played just 11 minutes per game during the camp, still managed to finish the camp 13th overall in offensive rebounding.

    Holloway averaged 5 points and 4.3 rebounds, including an impressive 13 point, 5 board effort vs. the South. However, Holloway made just 43 percent of his field goal attempts on 9-21 fromt he field.

    TheInsiderHoops.com's Dave Telep on Holloway: We've always said that somewhere inside that huge body is a player and Holloway is starting to chip away at his potential. Now, he's not the kind of player for everyone since he's not overly athletic, lacks speed up and down the floor and plays strictly inside. However, he's tough in the paint and has his body in better shape than he did last summer. Nice opening effort as he gets 13 and 5.
