In case you missed it, what a weekend it was:
We at The News sports department concluded our 50th anniversary celebration of the All-Western New York boys basketball team by announcing our all-time All-WNY team.
Your comments are welcome on a blog post which includes a list of the team.
We also compiled a decade-by-decade retrospective of the All-WNY teams, including our all-decade teams as well as which schools dominated those eras.
The entire series, an all-time All-WNY roster and links to your feedback for all the various eras is linked at the top right-hand side of the high school home page.
The Section VI boys basketball championship weekend was one to remember in every class.
* A-1: The most memorable game of the weekend came in the A-1 final as McKinley beat Williamsville South in double overtime (story and live blog). Williamsville South's Mark Coppola left quite an impression on the Macks.
The action at Jamestown Community College on Friday night wasn't bad either.
* Meanwhile, Canisius had its season end in the state Catholic semifinals.
* The All-Western New York talk about this year's team has started already -- don't worry, we'll have a post up on that subject very soon.

... while both Section VI representatives -- Niagara-Wheatfield and Kenmore East -- are off to Utica for the final four.
We had a big roundup in Sunday's paper for a reason -- there was some serious track and field, bowling and swimming events held far and wide.
There is no Scholastic Spotlight this week -- it will be back in the spring. The next polls of the basketball season will be the final ones and will be published in our All-Western New York and all-star editions.
