I'll be in the office tonight on what is a pretty big, early night for high school basketball, including several league openers on the boys side.
This blog is an extension of what we did Saturday afternoon, and what we might be doing more often -- monitoring games via the tweets of high school sports fans and followers who use the #preptalklive hashtag.
There are several nights where we will be doing our own #preptalklive reporting from big games, but there will also be many nights where we don't have a reporter out at a particular contest. That's just the way it goes in the winter with events happening almost every evening. We're hoping to incorporate different things into this kind of feature and this kind of coverage, so things will certainly evolve.
Much of it starts with you high school fans out there. Tweet updates and observations with the hashtag #preptalklive, and those will appear instantly in the blog below, making the #preptalklive blog -- as it was during football season -- the place to check out scores from all over Western New York.
Our scoreboard page has a schedule of today's games and will have box scores as games are reported to us.
Note: The scoreboard page might not be complete because gathering info early in the season can sometimes be a challenge. Also, we appreciate the patience of coaches and readers regarding some glitches in our scoreboard page in the opening weeks of the season. We are working to resolve several issues. THANK you.
