Much like the Christmas season, it feels like the Holiday Classic came and went in the blink of an eye.

Four days of non-stop basketball action culminated with the crowning of a boys and girls tournament champion Saturday night at The Palace.

Here are the results from the final two rounds of the 25th installment of north Louisiana’s largest tournament.

Boys Semi-finals

Loyola 64, Minden 57

The Crimson Tide couldn’t get their offense going in the semi-finals against Loyola, as the Flyers played smart, clean basketball and took advantage of several missed opportunities on Minden’s end.
