FCIAC, NVL final

FCIAC: Bassick vs. Stamford at Webster Bank Arena, tonight
It's a good appetizer before the MAAC men's and women's college tournament coming up later this week (plenty of good tickets still available). Stamford has made a nice run as the No. 7 seed, beating both Ridgefield and Westhill. Bassick beat Stamford in the regular-season matchup back on Jan. 4. You are never sure which Bassick team will show up, but I think the good one does tonight and gets the FCIAC crown.
Prediction: Bassick.

NVL: Holy Cross vs. Crosby at Wilby, Wednesday
No surprise the top two seeds advanced to this point. Holy Cross swept the season series and has just one loss whil Crosby has four. Holy Cross has the league's best player in guard Mike Mallory and he is a difference-maker. But just when you think the streak finally is coming to an end, Crosby finds a way, like it did against Sacred Heart last year.
Prediction: Crosby remains the only team to win the NVL tournament, doing so for the eighth straight time.
