The player interviews are also available here:

Hello from the Times Union Center for the third of three days of basketball for Monsignor Martin Association girls teams -- and the final day of the high school basketball season in New York State -- at the Federation Tournament of Champions. 

As always, we'll certainly be looking forward to your #PrepTalkLive contributions from these contests via Twitter. 

Our scoreboard page has a full 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 set up blogs like this throughout the winter, especially on 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.

We want tweets from all varsity sports, every season, 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.
