The 2014 CCC girls basketball tournament pairings were announced Thursday night and Farmington will enter No. 1 seed.
“We play in, according to the crossover games anyway, the toughest division in the CCC, and I think that is what will prepare us for tournament play,” said Farmington coach Russ Crist.
The Indians lost just two games this season, opening night to Weaver and then a three-point defeat to Hall on January 23. They would love to play second-seeded Weaver again, but are taking it one game at a time. If the two teams play in the CCC tournament, it would be in the finals.
“We would love a chance to do that, because for us, it means that we would have advanced past the first two rounds, but we’re going to take it one game at a time and just look at our match-up with Tolland first,” said Crist.
As for the other first round match-ups, RHAM vs. South Windsor is the only regular season rematch with the Bobcats defeating the Sachems 69-55 on January 20 in Hebron.
The CCC girls basketball tournament is set to begin Feb. 22 at New Britain. The field has been reduced to eight teams due to weather and scheduling issues. The championship will be played Feb. 26 at New Britain.
