We're #PrepTalkLive from Times Union Center in Albany for today's New York State Federation Tournament of Basketball Champions Tournament between defending Class A Fed champion Canisius and Albany Academy.
The game is a rematch of last year's final, in which the Crusaders won 48-44.
The winner of today's game will face Elmont, the New York State Public High Schools Athletic Association champion, for the overall state championship at 5 p.m. Saturday.
Canisius isn't the only Western New York team at the tournament. State Class B champion Olean and girls state Catholic Class A champion Sacred Heart open play in the Federation on Saturday.
