Another high school hoops season is upon us

Submitted Mon, 12/03/2012 - 10:30am by Charlie

The high school basketball season starts later and later every year, it seems.  With the football season now into mid-December, games have been shaven from the hoops schedules.  This week's broadcast schedule includes...

Wednesday, Duquesne plays Pitt at the Consol Energy Center.  Air time on WFBG is 6:30.

The hoops season opens Friday.  The Altoona boys will be at the Peters Twp. tournament for the second season in a row.  The Mountain Lions beat West Mifflin in the consy round last year and that's who they'll open with on Friday.  We begin the broadcast at 6PM, just in time for tip-off.

On Saturday, we'll broadcast their game in the tournament, be it the championship or the consolation round.  Air time will be 1:45 if they lose Friday, 3:15 if they win.  Later in the evening, Pitt hosts North Florida.  Air time is 6:30.

The Lady Lions will be at the North Allegheny tournament on Friday and Saturday.  On Friday, they open with Mt. Lebanon.  We won't be airing that tournament, but we'll be in touch and keep you updated with the scores.
