Holton (1-20, 1-9) was led by Carter Brant with 13 points and Keon McMillan with eight.
“We didn’t play particularly well on either side of the ball tonight,” Holton coach Keith Swanson said. “I thought Shelby’s length and physicality were a couple things that stuck out that gave us problems.”

Holton will take on North Muskegon on Tuesday evening at North Muskegon.
