Cataract City Classic lineup set

As we listed in today's Prep Talk column, the Cataract City Classic boys basketball tournament is all set for December of 2009.

Here's the list of games, and it's never to early to pour over the matchups.

Friday, Dec. 11
Canisius vs. V-Aquinas, 5 p.m.
Grand Island vs. Middle College, 6:30 p.m.
North Tonawanda vs. Sweet Home, 8 p.m.

Saturday, Dec. 12
Afternoon session
Lancaster vs. V-Aquinas, noon
East Aurora vs. Medina, 1:30 p.m.
Frontier vs. Riverside, 3 p.m.

Evening session
Wilson vs. V-Batavia, 5 p.m.
Williamsville North vs. St. Mary's, 6:30 p.m.
St. Joe's at Niagara Falls, 8 p.m.

So what do you think? It would have been nice to see Nichols in there somewhere .. .or newly independent Maple Grove, but after the school double-booked itself and had to back out of the event last year I can understand it.

Let's hope we see another Nichols-Niagara Falls matchup in 2009-10. After Nichols went to Falls last year, it's probably the Wolverines' turn to visit Buffalo, ideally as part of the MLK Classic.

Any other matchups you'd like to see?

I'll post a schedule-building entry as soon as I get some more material for next season.
