Nine teams in the NH Register/GameTimeCT boys basketball preseason poll played on opening night Wednesday, Eight of them won.
The only team that lost was No. 8 St. Joseph to Westhill 74-72 in a FCIAC contest covered by Matt Doran for the Connecticut Post.
It’s a light schedule on Thursday’s docket, but the remaining preseason top 10 team that didn’t play, No. 9 Bunnell, hosts the SWC Tip-Off doubleheader this year. The Bulldogs face Kaynor Tech at 7:30 p.m.
In the opener, Notre Dame-Fairfield faces Career at 5:30. Career, out of the SCC, replaces Newtown in the four-team field.
This is a doubleheader worth seeing because all four teams will be state-tournament bound at the very least come March.
