BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- The 16th addition of the Stop DWI Tournament was not as loaded as tournaments past, but the event is run to help support the prevention of drug and alcohol abuse amongst teenagers and is always well organized and well supported. The tournament is split into a National Division and Local Division and this year's National winner was Holy Cross out of the famous New York City Catholic League. Lead by stand out senior, Virginia-bound, Sylven Landesberg, Holy Cross dominated its three games in the tournament, beating Middletown (Ohio), Shelby County (Kentucky) and I.C. Norcrom (Virginia) along the way. In the championship game, they started out slow and were down six points early in the game, but behind 27 points and 14 rebounds by Landesberg, they were able to put away I.C. Norcrom and won the game easily by the score of 70-42. Blaise French capped off a strong weekend with 15 points and seven assists for Holy Cross in the final as well.
