After the New Year came the big snowstorm, making tonight the first big night of basketball of 2014, and the first big night for our #PrepTalkLive blog.
My plan is to check out Williamsville North's visit to McKinley at 6:30 p.m. in a battle of two top 10 large schools.
Other key games include -- at the same 6:30 tip-off -- Bishop Timon-St. Jude at Nichols and Lockport at Niagara Falls.
Our scoreboard page has a schedule of today's games -- that same page will have box scores as games are reported to us throughout the evening.
Keep track of the action and contribute to it as well in the blog below -- the easiest way to do that is to tweet updates with the #PrepTalkLive hashtag .
We will set up blogs like this throughout the winter, especially on big, busy nights -- we'll monitor games via not only our tweets, but those of high school sports fans and followers who use the #preptalklive hashtag.
While tonight is a busy basketball night, we want tweets from all varsity sports every day of the week. The #preptalklive blog (and hashtag) -- as it was during football season -- is the place to check out scores from all over Western New York.

Tomorrow afternoon, I'll be live blogging and tweeting courtside at Canisius College at 1 p.m. for this season's first meeting of St. Joe's and Canisius.
