St. Augustine Wins Allstate Sugar Bowl CYO Basketball Title
Saturday, December 4, 2010
After cruising through the first three rounds of the Allstate Sugar Bowl CYO Basketball Tournament, St. Augustine High School found itself in a barnburner in the Saturday evening Championship game at Jesuit High School. After winning its first three games by an average margin of 29 points, the Purple Knights still took care of business in a close battle, knocking down a pair of free throws with four seconds to go to edge Brother Martin, 66-64. It is St. Aug's first title since 2007 in the event, which marked its 57th anniversary this year.
Craig Victor, a 6-7 freshman, led St. Augustine to the title and earned Most Valuable Player honors. He was joined on the all-tournament team by teammate Javan Felix as well as Casey Wade and Amani Thomas from Rummel and Denzil Fleming and Schane Rillieux from Brother Martin.
