NEW ORLEANS – For the seventh straight year, the Allstate Sugar Bowl will sponsor the Allstate Sugar Bowl CYO Basketball Tournament. The 2014 event will run from Wednesday, Dec. 3 through Saturday, Dec. 6. This year marks the 61st year of the tournament.
East Jefferson High School’s boys’ basketball team held off Brother Martin, 55-45, on Saturday night to capture the championship of last year’s Allstate Sugar Bowl CYO Basketball Tournament. It was East Jefferson’s second title in the event; the Warriors’ first came in 1993 when Neil Reed led them to the championship.
East Jefferson guard Shaquille Preston was named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player after leading his team to the title. A signee with UT-Chattanooga, Preston finished with 24 points and five assists to come out on top in a showdown with Jordan Cornish, the star from Brother Martin, who has signed with Tennessee. Cornish finished with 26 points and 10 rebounds. The Warriors were also aided by 12 points, seven rebounds and four blocks from 6-7 Curtiss Anderson.
Joining Preston on the all-tournament team were Cornish, Anderson, Juwan Green (Hahnville) and Troy Green (East St. John).
