The St. Aloysius Flashes found one last present under the tree before Christmas.

Padre Gray hit seven 3-pointers and Korey Sims hit three as St. Al jumped on Silliman early and rolled to a 74-58 victory Tuesday in a boys’ basketball holiday tournament at Cathedral High School in Natchez.

The game was a late addition to the schedule for St. Al before it headed into a holiday break that will last until Jan. 4.
