NEW ORLEANS – As high school football season winds down, high school basketball season is underway, and SportsNOLA.com begins its schedule of roundball coverage this weekend.
SportsNOLA Prep Basketball presented by First NBC Bank will broadcast the championship game of the 63rd annual Allstate Sugar Bowl CYO Tournament Saturday night from Jesuit High School. The live stream will begin just before the scheduled 7:30 p.m tipoff. SportsNOLA’s Ken Trahan will call the play-by-play.
The tournament begins Wednesday with 15 teams from southeast Louisiana competing to earn spots in Saturday’s final – Brother Martin, Catholic High (Baton Rouge), Chalmette, East St. John, John Curtis, De La Salle, Ben Franklin, Holy Cross, Jesuit, Newman, Archbishop Rummel, Archbishop Shaw, St. Paul’s, St. Thomas Aquinas and West Jefferson.
St. Paul’s defeated De La Salle 81-79 in last year’s championship game.
