Prep Hoops: What are your first memories of basketball becoming something you love and a big part of your life?

Trevin Holland: My first memories of basketball are from 3rd grade when I was asked to play with the 4th graders in tournaments. These tournaments were so fun because we got to go out and have fun and win some tournaments while we were at it. That’s when I knew that I loved the game.

What is your pregame ritual on game day?

Trevin Holland: To get game ready, I listen to music and make sure I’m warmed up by doing ball handling and getting up at lease 75 shots in another gym.

Who is your favorite college or professional player to watch? And to learn from (if different)?

Trevin Holland: I love watching KD play. I just think we are built the same and can stretch the floor by shooting from deep. I also learn from KD by copying some of his moves. I especially like the hesitation jumper.

If you could play on any court in the world, what court would you pick and why?

Trevin Holland: I think it would be awesome to play in Cameron Indoor Stadium. I just think that there is so much history in that building that playing there would be awesome.

Who is your team’s biggest rival in basketball and what makes that rivalry special?

Trevin Holland: Our biggest rival is a toss up between Lake Preston and Arlington. Lake Preston has been DeSmet’s rival since before my dad was in high school. I also think of Arlington as a big rival because we have battled with them in districts for the last few years.

When you are off the floor, what is your favorite hobby to take part in?

Trevin Holland: My favorite hobby is hunting.

The best sports movie of all time is? And best non sports move?

Trevin Holland:  Best sports movie is Invincible. Best non sports movie is Shooter.

At this point in your basketball life what has been the most memorable moment, or moments?

Trevin Holland:  The most memorable moment in my basketball career is when we went to the state tournament my freshman year. I did not play in the tournament, but the atmosphere in Aberdeen during the tournament is just amazing.

How do players in your community support and relate to the young and up and coming players? In other words, what do you guys do to support the youth hoopers in your area?

Trevin Holland:  To get the young hoopers in the gym, we hold a camp every summer for girls and boys that focuses on fundamentals. We also help run a couple tournaments in the winter.

What is the best advice that you’ve received in life?

Trevin Holland:  My dad tells me “work hard at what you do and stay focused on what you want to accomplish in life”
