The Niagara Falls and LaSalle Senior High School boys and girls basketball teams will match up for the final time in special games Feb. 16 in the main arena of the Niagara Falls Convention and Civic Center, 305 Fourth St.

With the two schools merging into one new school next year, School Superintendent Carmen Granto said the games were "too big to hold at either of the schools' home sites."

"We are extremely grateful to Roger Trevino and the Niagara Falls Redevelopment for the role they are playing in allowing this major community event to be held where it should be," Granto said. Niagara Falls Redevelopment operates the Convention Center.

"The venue adds to the big-game atmosphere and will allow for a fitting tribute to the teams as well as accommodate the expected fan interest," Granto said.

The girls basketball game will begin at 5:30 p.m., and the boys game will follow at 7:15. There will be commemorative tickets available for the two games, now on sale in LaSalle Senior High School, Niagara Falls High School, the Community Education Center and the Board of Education Administrative Building.

Tickets are $2, and seating will be general admission.
