The inaugural boys & girls varsity basketball tournament will now begin Saturday

Due to inclement weather, Wallenpaupack Area officials have announced that the first round games of the inaugural Lake Region Tip-Off Basketball Tournament have been postponed.

Instead of beginning Friday night as originally planned, games will get underway Saturday afternoon.

Eric Keller, a Honesdale High School graduate who just recently took over the AD position at Paupack, tells The News Eagle that basketball will be played one way or another.

"We have what we think is a pretty good plan in place," he said. "At this point, we're not really expecting a major snowstorm, but we're ready just in case."

The schedule is as follows:

•Boys: Monticello vs. Pocono Mountain East, 4 p.m.; Paupack vs. Western Wayne, 5:30 p.m.

•Girls: Western Wayne vs. East Stroudsburg Notre Dame, 1 p.m.; Carbondale Area vs. Paupack, 2:30 p.m.
