The Garden will host the Public Schools Athletic League’s Class-AA basketball championships Saturday, March 11, 2017. Unfortunately none of the Queens teams we were following have made it, but there’s going to be a set of exciting games going on at the “Worlds Most Famous Arena” tomorrow. One the line besides NYC Basketball Supremacy? … a Federation Tournament Berth.
In the first game, the top seeded Lady Vikings of South Shore Campus face the Lady Blazers of Murry Bergtraum who are once again returning to the Garden. Game two promises to be a rematch thriller, as the Abraham Lincoln Railsplitters will be up against the Thomas Jefferson Orange Wave. The Railsplitters and O-Wave have played three times this season (Lincoln has won all 3 so far … 12/22 88-71, 2/1 74-65, and 2/16 [BK Boro Playoffs] 59-54).
