Top: It's playoff time on the Section VI hardwood! On Saturday, all the matchups were revealed in the boys and girls brackets, and local players like Dunkirk's Devaun Farnham (left) and Fredonia's Hannah Gullo (right) will look to help their teams make deep playoff runs.

The Steelers outshot Olean 60-15, and more importantly, won 4-1. A win today at Fredonia's Steele Hall would advance the Steelers to Super Sunday next week at Buffalo's KeyBank Center.
