Busy Tuesday night for #preptalkscores, including big wins for Cleve Hill (with video), Akron, Iroquois, Maryvale, EA

It's again a very busy Tuesday night in boys basketball. I've got a Prep Talk column to write for tomorrow, so I'll probably be limited to one game (Cleveland Hill at Tonawanda at 6:30) but we can keep track of updates here and via Twitter.

Tweets to the hashtag #preptalkscores will automatically show up in the live blog. So if you are a game tonight and you're updating via Twitter, be sure to include that hashtag. I'll have periodic tweets updating the game at @KeithMcSheaBN, but most of my updating will come in the live blog.

Check out tonight's full schedule on our scoreboard page, and check back throughout the night for updated box scores and highlights.

See you out at the games, in the chat and on the tweeter. :-)

Highlights and interviews from Cleveland Hill's win at Tonawanda:

Sophomore Jared Watkins ties it up late at 49-49 late in regulation; the score wouldn't change the rest of the way (above).

In OT, a big block on the double-team help by Jordan Parker in the low post and the ball goes out of bounds to Cleve Hill (above). 

Play of the Game: Daryl Spencer, guarding Tonawanda standout Jesse Lalka, tips the ball away, gets it back from Miles Barker and makes the tough, full-speed finish to put the Golden Eagles up, 53-52, with 1:16 left in overtime (above).

Cleve Hill had the ball with 37.3 seconds left, got fouled, then Tonawanda had to foul three times to get to seven and kick in the one-and-one. The first one missed and Tonawanda had a chance (above). 

Cleve Hill missed the front end with 4.5 seconds left, but DeVonte Davis grabbed the rebound and was fouled with 4.2 seconds left to go to the line (above).

Here's the postgame show:

More to come Wednesday with Riverside at Hutch-Tech, plus the live chat at 9 p.m. starting video-style with Lauren Mariacher and myself.

Thursday it's St. Joe's at Bishop Timon-St. Jude in what should be a great atmosphere, as always.
