We'll start with a video chat tonight for what is traditionally one of the most interesting chats of the year -- the post-All-Western New York basketball wrapup. Lauren Mariacher and I will field questions before I continue with the traditional chat.
As always, anything in the world of high school sports -- or our coverage of it -- is up for discussion. But we certainly look forward to fielding questions regarding this year's All-WNY process, from picking the teams to picking the location for our special photo shoot. Other topics might include the final polls or Monday's debut of the Prep Talk/BCANY Awards banquet.
We'll also respond to some comments that have been made on buffalonews.com as well as some All-WNY talk on Twitter. We only ask that any questions regarding players are respectful; you can ask why one player made it over another, or why you think one player should have made it over another, but there is a respectful way to do that.
I promise I'll get to your question or comment -- but please be patient. It can get busy fielding all of the questions and I can only answer one at a time. And PLEASE don't enter your question/comment multiple times -- that only makes things more hectic.
