Anybody who wants to but hasn't yet seen Jamestown 'up here' before the playoffs, last chance tonight at Lancaster.

Mr. Centercourt what were your thoughts on the big games last night? Do you think the game tomorrow can top either game last night? Who do you think wins tomorrow?

Sam -

I was at the Canisius/Timon game and it was one of the best times I've had this season. Probably the second best game I've seen this year - that AQ/BK double OT thriller is tough to top. It seemed to me like the classic example of one team (Canisius) believing they could pull it out and the other team (Timon) thinking here we go again.

Once that game headed to OT it felt like the Crusaders' to lose. Matt Hart's 3-pointer in overtime was the dagger, and I think any neutral fans like myself, felt for the Tigers staff and players, particularly Jim Palano, after losing on such a special night.

On one hand I was shocked to hear about St. Francis beating the Marauders. Then again, the league hadn't seen a serious upset in awhile, so they were due. St. Joe's has gotten up for its most important games recently, but showed against teams like Walsh, Niagara Catholic, and now St. Francis, a tendency to play down, which finally cost them.

I think given the high stakes of today's game (One vs. Two, WNY's biggest rivalry, regular season finale, league title & seeding at stake) it could very well top Thursday's games. The atmosphere alone will have it close to what Thursday had to offer. I'll predict the two teams feed off of Thursday and with the Crusaders making some big shots down the stretch.

Thank you Mr. Centercourt. I really love this web site. The only thing that would make it better if there were more people who have your great sense of the game without the bias so many show in their writing.

It has been quite a season and there porbably couldn't be a better way to wrap it up with the rivalry game today.
