After watching 2 weeks of AABL action, it seems as if individual accomplishments have taken a backseat to well-rounded team play in 2009.  The squads that are winning have proven that ball distribution and a balanced attack are key factors to getting a W in the league this season.  With stellar ball-handling and a keen passing touch, Soldiers’ Ron Holloway is making a mark as one of the best floor generals in the league.  Down for most of the game against one of the league’s top teams, Holloway helped the Soldiers keep their composure with great court leadership as the Soldiers steadily came back and eventually dominated Dream Team in the closing minutes.  Holloway finished the game with 18 pts, 7 asts, 3 rebs, 4 stls, 1 three, 5/7 FTs.  Also, he managed to take good care of the ball, enabling the Soldiers to make the most out of every possession.
