We have finals, semifinals and quarterfinals. Follow the live blog below for updates from all of tonight’s tournament action including the SCC championship between No. 1 Fairfield Prep and Hillhouse and the NVL final between Crosby and Sacred Heart.
Capital Prep vs. Bullard-Havens: Tall order for the Tigers here. CAPITAL PREP
Prince Tech vs. Abbott Tech: Prince Tech won the regular-season matchup by 13. That’s good enough for me. PRINCE TECH.
Kaynor Tech vs. Cheney Tech: Kaynor is playing very well now at the most opportune time and a win guarantees a “home game” in the semifinals Thursday. KAYNOR TECH.
Whitney Tech vs. University: Whitney has had a nice season, but this would be a major upset for the Inventors. UNIVERSITY.
Ledyard vs. NFA: Ledyard hasn’t lost a game in the ECC this year. Don’t see why that would start now: LEDYARD
New London vs. Woodstock Academy: This is the first matchup between the two rivals this season (New London hasn’t faced Ledyard, either). New London has owned this tournament in recent years. Woodstock Academy is set to defend its Class L state title. WOODSTOCK ACADEMY
Fairfield Prep vs. Hillhouse: Rematch of last year’s final, won by Hillhouse in overtime. Prep won both regular-season matchups. Hillhouse’s last loss was to Prep on Jan. 31. The Academics are playing much better now than at any point during the season. Prep has struggled down the stretch, but has plenty of players able to contribute and step up in crunch time. That could be the difference. FAIRFIELD PREP.
Crosby vs. Sacred Heart: Another round 3 matchup. Teams split during the season. Both have studs in Tyshon Rogers (Crosby) and Mustapha Herron (Sacred Heart). Crosby is going for its 10th league title in just 11 years of existence. It probably is a fool’s errand to pick against the Bulldogs, but, I am. SACRED HEART.
