We move onto Tuesday’s games [Follow the live blog below for updates]
Bunnell vs. Weston: Bunnell won by 30 points during the regular season. Weston will fare better than that, but the Bulldogs will have a shot Thursday to defend their title. BUNNELL
Barlow vs. Kolbe Cathedral: Can Barlow continue its Cinderella run through the brackets. The Falcons already knocked off top-seeded Notre Dame-Fairfield in the quarterfinals. But the clock will strike midnight. KOLBE CATHEDRAL.
Shoreline semifinals, at site of higher seed
Valley Regional at Cromwell: Teams split during the regular season. Cromwell is playing better as of late and will be in New Haven Friday for the final. CROMWELL
East Hampton at Westbrook: These two teams also split during the season on each other’s home court. Westbrook is back at full strength with Faruk Ceccunjanin back from his thumb injury. Still, the Bellringers are pretty tough to slow down offensively. EAST HAMPTON.
Greenwich vs. Ridgefield: Greenwich won a low-scoring game during the regular season. Expect another one tonight – and the same result: GREENWICH
Bridgeport Central vs. Stamford: Stamford may have had Westhill’s number this season, but the Black Knights lost by 21 points at home to Central eight days ago. If Central, the defending champion, is on its game, this also could be a similar score – or worse. BRIDGEPORT CENTRAL
CCC semifinals, at Bulkeley
Glastonbury vs. Maloney: Two lower-seeded teams in what has been an upset-filled tournament. Arguably the state’s best conference and I still don’t know which team is best. Not sure about this one either. Flipping the coin….MALONEY
Weaver vs. Hartford Public: Two other teams opponents won’t want to see in the state tournament. Especially last year’s Class S finalist. WEAVER
Berkshire semifinals, at Thomaston
Lewis Mills vs. Northwestern: Lewis Mills swept the regular-season series. Let’s make it three: LEWIS MILLS
Terryville vs. Gilbert: Terryville’s only loss was by 2 points to Cromwell, the top seed in the Shoreline Conference. Terryville blitzed Gilbert by 35 three weeks ago. TERRYVILLE.
