Tonight's major matchup we'll be on hand for is No. 2 large school Canisius at No. 7 Bishop Timon-St. Jude at 7 p.m.
There should be the usual great crowd on hand and great atmosphere at Palano gym. It's also the start of quite the weekend for boys basketball, including for both of these teams. On Saturday, the Crusaders (vs. Fairport) and Timon (vs. Rochester East) will take on Section V powers at the RAP Invitational at East High in Rochester.
The RAP event begins tonight with Olean traveling to take on East High in a compelling matchup. Other key games tonight include McKinley vs. Middle Early College at ECC-City at 7 in Yale Cup I and Frontier at Williamsville North at 7:30 in ECIC I. In Yale Cup III, Lafayette heads to Olmsted at 6 p.m. in a battle for first place; at 7 p.m., second place in the Niagara Frontier League is on the line as North Tonawanda hosts Lockport.
I'll have updates from games in the live blog below and I'll also be providing #preptalkscores updates on Twitter, which will also appear in the blog.
