Allstate Sugar Bowl CYO Basketball Tournament
November 29 - December 2
The Allstate Sugar Bowl took on sponsorship of the New Orleans CYO High School Tournament in 2008. The event, which is celebrating its 64th year of action, is scheduled for Wednesday, November 29 through Saturday, December 2 at four local high schools.
De La Salle defeated John Curtis, 83-72, to capture the championship of the 2016 Allstate Sugar Bowl CYO Basketball Tournament. It was De La Salle’s first CYO Basketball Tourney title since 1988 when Jay Fazende, who went on to star at Fordham, led the Cavaliers to the title. It is the eighth title all-time for the Cavaliers in the 63-year history of the event.
Troy Nisby led the Cavaliers with 19 points, including 17 in the second half, to go with 12 rebounds, while Rodney Munson added 17 points. Kai Morgan led the Patriots with a game-high 26 points and Dawson Crosby added 23.
Chalmette, which was led by tournament MVP Mitchell Robinson, cruised to a 95-58 victory over defending champion St. Paul’s in the third-place game. Robinson, a seven-footer who is the No. 9 rated high school player in the country according to ESPN, averaged over 40 points per game in the tournament.
