It's a backyard basket-battle tonight as Drury hosts McCann Tech in a Western Mass. Division 4 Boys quarterfinal! The winner heads to the Cage for next week's semifinals.

Tip-time is at 7:00, but if you can't squeeze into the Bucky Bullett Gym be sure to listen as Jack Passetto brings all the action home to you starting at 6:50 on AM1230 WNAW. And tell the alumni far & wide that we'll be streaming the game live on wnaw.com.

It's an early start to another busy sports weekend on your hometown station for sports. Friday night, the Celtics host Washington at 7:30. The Bruins take over TD Garden Saturday to face the NJ Devils at 6:30, and the Celtics return to the court Sunday at 3 to take on the Houston Rockets.

And this should take your mind off the snow outside: the Red Sox regular season starts one month from today, March 28, at Seattle. You'll be able to catch the World Series Champs, home and away, all season long once again on WNAW.
