And the postgame show:

PrepTalkTV: Canisius-Jamestown football & more

By Keith McShea

The week's weather difficulties bumped our original guests from tonight's PrepTalkTV show, but we've got plenty to talk about with yesterday's news that Canisius and Jamestown will play a regular season nonleague football game in Week Four of the 2014 season.

News Sports Clerk and contributor Nick Veronica will join me for the show at 7:30 p.m. as we talk some football, the basketball polls as well as what's coming up this weekend and beyond. 

The Cardinal O'Hara girls basketball team was to be guests on the show, but they had a postponed game from Wednesday moved to today. We hope to have them on in the future.

You can watch the show live here or at the BuffaloNews.com home page. After the show the complete broadcast segments will be posted here.

The live show will be again be followed shortly thereafter by a live chat in which we'll discuss anything about Western New York high school sports, or our coverage of it.

We'll also monitor tonight's action -- including Federation hockey game between Canisius and Bishop Timon-St. Jude -- through the #PrepTalkLive hashtag on Twitter.

Please be patient in the chat. I promise I'll get to all questions.

It's a very busy Friday night on both the boys and girls basketball sides, with top league showdowns in ECIC I (Jamestown at Clarence at 7:30 p.m.) and the Niagara Frontier League (Kenmore West at Lockport at 6:30). I'm headed to Clarence with a likely stop at an early game beforehand. There's also a big wrestling showdown as No. 1 large school Clarence heads to No. 4 Lancaster for their "Border Brawl" dual meet.
