Xavier is the top seed in the Southern Connecticut Conference tournament and will be the No. 2 seed in the Class LL field when the seedings are officially announced on Friday.
Greenwich will be the top seed and will receive the only first-round bye. The Cardinals could face Fairfield Prep, last year’s finalist, in the second round. Xavier will likely draw Bridgeport Central in the opening round.
Amity is the No. 8 seed and could host No. 9 Norwich Free Academy in the second round if seeding holds to form. Shelton and Guilford should be seeded 11th and 14th, respectively, and get first-round home games.
There are three unbeaten teams in Class L — Naugatuck, Barlow and University/Prince Tech, the top three seeds here. Torrington is the No. 4 seed at 15-1.
Hand and Branford will be seeded 11th and 12th, respectively. Both will play first-round home games and have to win on the road in the second round to advance to the quarterfinals against one another for the third time this season.
Platt Tech will get a first-round home game. If the Panthers advance, they will have to face one of the top two seeds on the road in the second round.

Cheshire is ranked seventh and could face either Glastonbury or St. Joseph in the quarterfinals if seeding holds to form. Amity will get a home game while Hand will have to travel, likely to Ridgefield, for its opener.
