Homeroom Announcements: Saturday's big games & more

We know there's no homeroom today. But we're up and ready to go.

Get yourself ready for today's #PrepTalkLive action with everything you need to know about the day ahead in high school sports.

What to watch for Saturday

1. Boys basketball - Canisius at Park, 3:30 p.m.

It's a clash of the titans with No. 1 large school Canisius (10-1, 2-0) visiting No. 2 Park (10-4, 3-1). The lone loss for the Crusaders this year was in Georgia against St. Pius X just after Christmas. The Pioneers suffered their first local loss last Tuesday at No. 3 Bishop Timon-St. Jude but have won two games since.

2. Wrestling - Second Section VI Dual Team Championships, 10 a.m. at Lancaster Field House

Niagara Wheatfield and Pioneer took home the team titles at the first dual championships last year, but there's a new prize for the winners this season: a trip to the first NYSPHSAA Dual Meet Championships in Syracuse next weekend. Finals start at 4 p.m.

This year's Section VI dual meet champions will head to inaugural state tournament

3. Girls basketball - Franklinville at East Aurora, 2 p.m.

No. 1 small school Franklinville (10-0) puts its undefeated record on the line when it visits No. 7 large school East Aurora (8-2).
