With the NBA, NHL, PGA Tour, MLS and MLB seasons on-hold, the postponement of March Madness and the NYSPHSAA Winter Championships, we thought it would be a good time to break out our top forty Wayne-Finger Lakes HS basketball broadcasts over the past several years on FingerLakes1.com. Check them out below including our top audio-only streams on FL1 Radio and, in case you missed it, links to every postseason game we broadcast over the past 2 weeks. Who says there’s no sports to watch?
#1 & #2
Lyons vs. Clyde-Savannah games in 2017-18 regular season
Of all the Wayne-Finger Lakes games we cover, there is nothing like the Lyons-Clyde rivalry games. The Route 31 Rivalry came to a head in the 2017-18 season with both programs at the top of their games. It was Justice Smith’s junior year and Clyde-Savannah’s senior campaign for Derrick Chance, Dru Carnevale and Marcus Chance. The home and home series produced two of the most memorable games ever on FL1 Sports so we present them both here for you as our #1 broadcast(s) of all-time on FingerLakes1.com.

On Saturday night on 2/2/13 the Lyons Lions and Newark Reds boys varsity basketball teams met for the first time since 1970 despite being neighboring communities in Wayne County whose gyms are separated by just 7 miles. The fact that this was happening for the first time in over 40 years made this a special night and the pregame broadcast intro was a great way to kick it off.
Geneva Panthers vs. Waterloo Indians in Section V Class B1 Championship 3/7/20
This one was just played a week ago but it will go down as an all-time classic. It was another iteration of Breakfast at the Big House with a 9:00 AM tip against a pair of cross-town FL East rivals at the Blue Cross Arena.
Section V Class C3 Semifinals with Naples/RCMCS & Lyons/Wheatland-Chili on 3/2/15

Section V Class C2 Semifinals with Mynderse vs Early College/Newark vs Livonia on 3/1/17

Newark Reds vs. Pal-Mac Red Raiders in the Section V Class B1 Championship 2/28/16
An all Finger Lakes East championship game in the Blue Cross and the game certainly didn’t disappoint!
2017 Section V Class A2 Championship | Wayne vs. Wilson-Magnet on 3/4/17
The Wayne Eagles shocked the world in 2017 on their way to an upset of Wilson-Magnet to win their school’s first Sectional title. Logan Blankenberg and company were just sophomores and even with the audio issued during the first half at Fairport High School this still ranks high as an all-time classic.

Mynderse and Newark squaring off at the Blue Cross Arena? Yes, I’ll take some of that!
Clyde-Savannah vs. Lyons at the Atwood Gymnasium on 1/2/15
A one-possession game late in a jam packed Atwood Gymnasium always makes for a great broadcast! Damon Hunter was a senior for Lyons coach Zac Young, Derrick Chance was a freshman and Mike Turner and Joe Faniel were key upperclassmen on Tim Jackson’s Golden Eagles.
Red Jacket vs. Byron Bergen & Whitman vs. Gananda in Section V Class C1 Boys Semifinals 3/2/20
OK, we know… a lot of games from the past few weeks made the list… How can you not include a semifinal in a local gym that featured 3 Wayne-Finger Lakes teams?

What a night in Waterloo just a few days shy of Christmas in 2018. Waterloo (boys) hadn’t beaten Mynderse in over 10 years, a girls-boys doubleheader that brought both communities out and filled the biggest gym in the Wayne-Finger Lakes, and even a pep band!
Red Creek vs. Lyons at the Atwood on 2/3/15
Damon Hunter scored a season high 33 points as Lyons took on a Red Creek team featuring Jake Slobe on a February in 2015 when the Wayne County boys league was chock full of talent and the race for the league title featured teams like these two along with North Rose-Wolcott, East Rochester, Gananda and Clyde-Savannah. This game was also pushed a day ahead from the original date due to a snow day.

These broadcasts would feature an expanded scoreboard presentation with the camera mostly on the announcers with some random shots of the gymnasium, especially during the pre and post game. It would be impossible to include these Gamecasts with our full broadcasts that made the list above but we wanted to highlight a couple of the best games here…
- Lyons vs. Clyde-Savannah – Section V Class C2 Semifinal on 2/24/14
