Wednesday Night Live, pre-chat from prequarterfinal hoops (with video)

It's one of those nights. We've got a lot of high school action and we've got a live chat at 10 p.m. What will we be able to see?

With 23 boys hoops games all starting at 7 p.m., I've got to be selective and smart with my travel plans.

Miguel Rodriguez is blogging live updates from tonight's Federation hockey semifinals in Amherst, which was one place I was considering dropping by. 

7:11 p.m. We're at St. Mary's School For The Deaf for the first time and watching a very spirited game between Tapestry and Maritime, two charter schools squaring off in Class C.

7:20 p.m. It's 16-16 after one quarter after Maritime got a steal and layup at the buzzer. Tapestry had started strong.

We're off to Sweet Home, which is hosting Kenmore West.

We have a report than Williamsville North is up at Lancaster, 18-9, after the first. That's another game I'm considering trying to get to.

7:44 p.m. Got to Sweet Home just in time for a special moment as Deshanaro Morris had his No. 4 retired by Sweet Home at halftime. I'll have pictures and a video of Day-Day's speech up as soon as I can.

I might not stick around too much longer, however. It's halftime and Sweet Home is up, 36-18.

Then again, maybe I'll stay. North is up, 39-24 at halftime at Lancaster.

8:01 p.m. Sweet Home keeps rolling. North's lead is under 10. I'm outta here.

Lancaster scorebook Williamsville North scorebook 8:31 p.m. I made it here for the last few minutes of a big victory for Williamsville North, which wins it, 68-57.

The scorebooks are at right.

Here's Will North coach Chuck Swierski on the win and the Spartans making a trip to top-seeded Orchard Park for Friday's quarterfinals:

I'm headed to the office to write some stuff up for the paper and add some details and clips here.

I'll be able to type faster -- a keyboard instead of a phone will help :-).

And there will be plenty to talk about in the chat at 10.

THANKS BIG TIME to Prep Talk Nation's BullsFan for keeping me updated on the Will North-Lancaster game. A tremendous help that aided in our coverage.
