There’s not a “must-see” matchup on tonight’s docket for boys basketball. But that doesn’t mean there are some pitfalls along the way.
Teams currently ranked in the GameTimeCT/NH Register Top 10 poll need to take care of business tonight, unlike two teams did on Thursday: No. 5 Hillhouse, which fell to New Haven city rival Wilbur Cross in overtime, and No. 8 Wilby, which lost to both Sacred Heart (Tuesday) and Kennedy and will free-fall out of the polls.
No. 1 Fairfield Prep travels to Amity in a SCC matchup. No. 2 Crosby hosts Derby, which upset Woodland Thursday. No. 3 Bridgeport Central comes off a thrashing of city rival Bassick and faces Darien.
No. 4 Career, playing its first game since losing to Fairfield Prep on Sunday, travels to Hamden to take on the Green Dragons. Hamden has already beaten Wilbur Cross this season.
No. 6 Greenwich, one of the handful of undefeated teams remaining, comes off a close win over Norwalk on Thursday, hosts Wilton (5:30 start). No. 9 Xavier comes off a loss to Wilbur Cross on Wednesday and hosts North Haven. No. 10 New Britain, which hasn’t played since losing to Hillhouse last Saturday, hosts Southington.
No. 7 Windsor hosts Weaver on Saturday at 6, weather permitting.
