The second day of the Allstate Sugar Bowl CYO Tournament and the Sophie B. Wright Tournament of Champions tipped off on Thursday, and the semifinals of both tournaments are now set.
St. Augustine (7-1) will face Central Lafourche (6-1) in one half of the CYO semis while John Curtis (4-1) takes on Lee (4-1) on the opposite side. Both matchups will be played at Jesuit at 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., respectively.
The Purple Knights took out Shaw, 62-40, Central Lafourche ousted St. Paul’s, 47-29, and Lee topped Holy Cross, 64-55. Curtis actually lost to De La Salle, 70-55, but opted to pass on its semifinal spot — likely due to its football team playing in the Division II title game against St. Thomas More in Lafayette Friday night.
In the Sophie B. Wright Tournament, an intriguing matchup featuring Crescent City (6-2) and Booker T. Washington (5-4) begins at 7 p.m. with the host Warriors (2-2) following against Jehovah-Jireh (10-2) at 8:30 p.m. All four teams advanced to Marsh Madness in Lake Charles last season and appear to be top contenders in their respective classes yet again.
In the quarterfinals, Crescent City slipped past Carver, 64-63, in overtime while Booker T. handled Hahnville, 61-53. Jehovah-Jireh bested Southern Lab, 57-50, and Sophie B. Wright’s 62-58 win over Slidell in the opening round sent them to the semis with no quarterfinal game.
