Section V basketball playoffs will not take place at Blue Cross Arena next year.

Organizers say this is due to scheduling conflicts.

The Amerks are home both Friday, March 3rd and Saturday, March 4th. These are usually the prime dates for Sectional finals. 

Rochester’s hockey schedule just came out on Monday. 

Section Five is going to relocate the games to local high school and college gyms. The only concern with that, is if it’s a high profile game, being able to seat fans.

“The biggest loss in this situation is for the kids who look forward to playing at the big house,” said Jack Purificato, Section V Boys’ Basketball Coordinator. “This is a huge hit for the fans of Section V.”

This is only expected to change for the 2016-2017 season.
