The Bottar Leone Holiday Classic started off with a bang with two close games on Sunday night, and finished with some more solid matchups on Monday.
In the consolation game, CBA and Henninger met, always a must-watch Section 3 matchup, but in this case, it was a one-sided battle. The Black Knights came out on fire from the outside, taking a 40-22 halftime lead en route to a 72-48 victory.
In the Championship game, Nazareth (Brooklyn) didn't score for the first 6:00+ minutes of the game, but came on strong after that, taking a 27-23 halftime lead. While J-D fought behind Jafar Kinsey's 21 and Dom DeRegis' 15 points, Nazareth pulled away at the end, winning 65-53, taking home the Bottar Leone Holiday Classic title.
