A very busy week of high school basketball on WFBG and wfbg.com, weather permitting.

The Altoona Mountain Lions open their home season on Tuesday night, when Hollidaysburg visits the Field House.  Charlie Weston and Art Taneyhill will broadcast all five games this week.  Air time is 7:15.  The Tigers split their games at the Indiana Tip-Off Tournament.  Altoona is 0-2.

Wednesday, the Lady Lions will keep searching for their first win in Hollidaysburg.  The Lady Tigers won their season opening tournament over the weekend.  Once again, air time is 7:15.  Both of these games will be on WFBG, wfbg.com and the MSA Sports network.  Leading Off with Joe Shuta begins the night at 6 O'Clock.

Friday, the Mountain Lions head to Cumberland, MD to take on the Allegany Campers.  This game will be on wfbg.com only.  We'll hit the air at 7:15. 

Saturday, all three broadcast venues again for a boy-girl doubleheader.  The Lady Lions start the day, taking on Shaler at 1:45, the boys from Altoona and Shaler follow.  Again, these games will be on wfbg.com and WFBG and MSA Sports.
