“Believe it or not, even though we’re from New Haven and Wilbur Cross is our crosstown rivals, we really consider this school (Fairfield Prep) to be our main rivals in the SCC. I mean, the past six or seven years, it’s either them or us.

GET OUT AN GO
• Norwich Free Academy at Ledyard, Tuesday, 7 p.m.: Huge game in the ECC.
• Kennedy at Sacred Heart, Tuesday, 7 p.m.: Can anyone in the NVL beat Sacred Heart? Kennedy gets it’s chance now.
• Wilbur Cross at Hillhouse, Thursday, 7 p.m.: Without Kasperzyk, Hillhouse looked mortal in surviving against Hamden last Thursday. Cross needs to rebound off it loss to Career.
• South Windsor at East Catholic, Friday, 6:45 p.m.: Top 10 CCC matchup. Both teams have one loss – to East Hartford.
• Hamden vs. Notre Dame-West Haven at the University of New Haven, Friday, 7 p.m.: Game sold out over an hour before tip at Hamden on Jan. 6. Smart move to put the game in a bigger arena. I still expect a sellout.
• Danbury at Fairfield Warde, Friday, 7 p.m.: Lost a little bit of luster with Warde’s loss last week, but still one of the top FCIAC games this season.
• East Lyme at Valley Regional, Friday, 7 p.m.: Valley Regional has been up and down this season. First matchup for Valley coach Kevin Woods against his former assistant (and Guilford native) Jeff Bernardi.
• Westbrook’s Liam Bell and Oxford’s Cole Chudoba both scored their 1,000th career point Friday night.
• Senior Carl Edwards will finally get to suit up for West Haven after sitting the necessary 10 games for transferring in the off-season from Creed. Edwards’ first game is Wednesday against Amity.
