We will have our live chat tonight after I run around to prequarterfinal basketball games.
There's no video start as Lauren Mariacher is off -- plus, I'm not exactly sure when I'll be back in the ofice to get things started. I'd guess around 9:30 or 9:45 p.m.
We'll open the chat window early so we can share updates of #preptalkscores on a fairly busy night of outbracket games that will set the field for Quarterfinal Friday.
Tweets to the hashtag #preptalkscores will also automatically show up in the live blog (including mine). So if you are a game tonight and you're updating via Twitter, be sure to include that hashtag.
Check out tonight's full schedule on our scoreboard page, where you can check back throughout the night for updated box scores and highlights.
As far as the chat goes, I promise I'll get to your question or comment -- but please be patient. It can get busy fielding all of the questions and I can only answer one at a time. And PLEASE don't enter your question/comment multiple times -- that only makes things more hectic.
Note: My apologies for my brainfart-caused errors regarding Albion and the A-2 bracket in today's paper. They have been fixed in the story online.

Video from my Wednesday travels:
Emerson took the lead for good in the final minute on Trevon Tubbins' off-balance jumper.
Raytrel Finley hits the free throw and Deron Adams makes a big steal to help seal the game for the Steelers.
