Each week we get a litmus test of Section 2 boys basketball as 'Big Game' James Allen joins Big Board Sports. The Times Union reporter has been covering 518 hoops since the late 1980's and continues to have his fingers on the pulse of all the area's best teams and players. This week Allen talked about the parody within the Suburban council, one of the area's rising young talents, and whether prep school is always a good idea for future college players.
