Holiday tradition: Campbell Hall star tops Atascadero at Christmas Classic

There's something about Mission Prep's Christmas Classic that brings the best out of the Holliday family. Aaron Holliday followed in the footsteps of his older brothers with a game-high 38 points to lead Campbell Hall to a come-from-behind victory over Atascadero 82-73 during challenge night on Wednesday.

The sophomore guard, who's already being recruited by Pac-12 schools like UCLA and Arizona, scored 16 points in the third quarter to fuel the comeback. Atascadero led 40-30 at halftime, but the Greyhounds trailed 52-51 after three. Aaron is the younger brother of Justin Holliday and current Philadelphia 76er Jrue Holliday, who teamed up to lead Campbell Hall to a Christmas Classic title in 2006 and were named co-MVPs.

The Greyhounds built an early lead after Holliday picked up two quick fouls. Jared Studeman heated up for Atascadero and had 8 first quarter points. The Hounds led 19-13 after one quarter. Studeman, a junior finished with a team-high 28 points. Junior point guard Robbie Berwick added 10 points, 9 assists and 3 steals, while sophomore Ryan O'Connell contributed 9 points.

Now 4-6, Atascadero hosts its own tournament next week.
