McKinley joins us on rant-o-rific PrepTalkTV Weekly; live chat sizes up states

By Keith McShea

With only three teams still competing this winter season, PrepTalkTV Weekly returns tonight. You can watch it right here tonight at 9.

We'll review the events of last week, which brought an abrupt end to many teams' seasons. We'll also take a look ahead to what is in front of the McKinley and Silver Creek boys basketball teams and the Cardinal O'Hara girls. Our guests is PrepTalkTV veteran Marcus Morris, a senior standout from McKinley.

As usual after PrepTalkTV Weekly, I'll have a live chat following the show.

Here's a rundown of the show:

0:00 -- Opening, winter winding down
2:00 -- Interview with McKinley senior Marcus Morris and a review of the Macks' Class A regional win. 
10:00 -- Review of Silver Creek's Class C regional win and discussion of my Prep Talk column on Zed Williams and the Black Knights in Thursday's paper.
15:10 -- My iPhone video of the BataviaBuzzerBeater against Olean, with several replays and freeze frames and discussion (and semi-rant) of why the shot was totally good and should not be disputed. Also a shoutout to seniors in Olean rotation.
26:10 -- Wrapup of Section VI's 0-for-5 performance in girls basketball, a look at Randolph interviews, and a definite rant on Section V placing private schools in Classes C and D.
37:55 -- Look ahead to McKinley and Silver Creek's brackets in Glens Fallse
41:00 -- Closing ... perhaps our goodbye for the winter season? 

Here's the live postshow chat:

Live from the Far West Regionals & your #preptalkscores (with VIDEO of buzzer-beater that beat Olean)

By Keith McShea

Hello on one of the most meaningful days on this school year's Western New York high school sports calendar.

We'll be reporting live from Rochester's Blue Cross Arena, site of the Far West Regional round that determines berths in next week's state public school final four. Meanwhile, Canisius and St. Mary's will play for Catholic state titles at Fordham University. Here's a preview of today's boys hoop action.

Also today: Girls basketball regionals at Buffalo State and state semifinal boys hockey with Niagara-Wheatfield in action in Utica. 

I'll provide play-by-play updates from the boys regionals in the live blog below and I'll have periodic #preptalkscores updates via Twitter which will also appear in the blog. 

Your tweets with the hashtag #preptalkscores are welcome -- as they will appear in the live blog as well. You can comment on these games or others. Every night, scoring update tweets (in any sport) are welcome to those on Twitter -- just use the #preptalkscores hashtag.

Check our scoreboard page for a complete schedule of tonight's games; the scoreboard will be updated as we receive game reports throughout the evening.
