The Omaha Metro Holiday Tournament concluded with two familiar foes, a rematch between defending Metro Tourney Champion Millard North against the defending Nebraska State Tourney Champion Bellevue West. The game turned out to be as advertised with the Mustangs outlasting the Thunderbirds in a double-overtime thriller. 

However, while the tournament played out true to form for the most part, and the "usual suspects" ( Saint Thomas Saint Thomas 6'6" | CG Millard North | 2021 State NE (MN), Chucky Hepburn Chucky Hepburn 6'1" | PG Bellevue West | 2021 State #77 Nation NE (BW), Hunter Sallis Hunter Sallis 6'4" | CG Millard North | 2021 State #8 Nation NE (MN), Frankie Fidler Frankie Fidler 6'6" | SF Bellevue West | 2021 State NE (BW), Jadin Johnson Jadin Johnson 6'4" | PG Millard North | 2021 State NE (MN)) all lived up to expectations in their two teams’ runs to the title game; there were a few quality hidden performances along the way during this 2020 tourney that seek recognition.

In the tournament’s most competitive game, until the aforementioned title game, Brocaille (#23 pictured) almost willed his Titans to an upset quarterfinal win over hosting Omaha Central High School. Though PLVS would ultimately fall in overtime 63-56 to the Eagles, the 6’5 junior was the best player on the floor this day; playing fearlessly against an athletic and aggressive Omaha Central defense
