Last year's CYO Tourney was capped by a thrilling finish as Newman's Kyle Lewis scored on a putback as time expired in overtime to lift the Greenies to a 58-57 victory over Jesuit in the championship game. It was the first CYO Tourney title for Newman. Trailing by one with five seconds to go, Kendall Lewis was off the mark with an 18-foot jumper, but twin brother Kyle gathered the rebound and rattled home the game-winner to shock the Blue Jays. Duke Douglas had 16 points and 11 boards for Newman to cap an outstanding weekend and earn tournament MVP honors. Joining Douglas on the all-tournament team were Matt Felger (Jesuit), Edwin Winston (East St. John), Greg White-Pittman (Holy Cross), Jordan Cornish (Brother Martin) and Kyle Lewis (Newman).
