As Wednesday came to a close, the first round of the Section VI boys basketball playoffs is now over with.

In Class AA, seventh-seeded Orchard Park took care of business against Frontier, the 10-seed. The Quakers collected a 63-53 victory, and will now advance to take on second-seeded Lancaster on Friday night.

Hamburg played host as the eight seed in their Class A matchup against ninth-seeded Hutch Tech, and although they needed a big fourth quarter, came away with the 79-70 victory. Next up, they'll take on the top-seed in the Class A-1 bracket, Williamsville South.

There were plenty of other results throughout Class AA, A, B, and C in the boys basketball playoffs, and you can find all the results at our interactive brackets right here.

The Section VI quarterfinals will take place on Friday night around Western New York.
