Here's a great video from News Video Reporter Joe Popiolkowski which takes a behind-the-scenes look at the photo shoot for the cover of today's All-Western New York basketball issue:
The issue is a print-only exclusive today. In addition to the cool cover, it includes:
* stories on the boys and girls Players of the Year;
* capsules on the players who made the first, second, third and fourth teams (the top 20) for both boys and girls;
* the final polls which determine the four champions of the large and small school polls;
* all-star teams from all of Western New York's leagues.
All of the all-WNY information from Saturday's paper will be posted online on Sunday.
Here is some archived information to hold you over until everything is posted: the boys all-time leading scorers; the girls all-time leading scorers; the list of every All-WNY boys first team and the list of every All-WNY girls team.

I'll be a guest on the Sports Insiders program on WECK-AM (1230) on Saturday around 11:30 a.m. to talk about the issue.
On Wednesday, April 13, we'll have our usual weekly chat -- and a review of the All-WNY teams will certainly be a hot topic.
On Thursday, April 22, I'll be a guest of the Officially Yours program on WECK (6:30 p.m.) for an extended discussion about the process of selecting the team.
