Remaining league tournament finals

The final round of predictions. Here goes:

CCC final: No. 4 Windsor vs. No. 2 Maloney at Bulkeley, 7 p.m.

Windsor has been on a roll and comes off a 35-point beatdown of previously undefeated Northwest Catholic in the semifinals. Maloney is one of two undefeated teams left in the state and has had a fine season in arguably the state's best conference. But that run likely comes to an end tonight.
Prediction: Windsor by 15.

SWC final: No. 1 Notre Dame-Fairfield vs. No. 3 Pomperaug at Weston, 7:30 p.m.
Notre Dame overcame a late two-game losing streak in the regular season to gain the top seed and then beat Kolbe Cathedral for a third time in the semifinals. Pomperaug ousted the defending champ, Stratford, in the semis and has had a fine season in its own right. Notre Dame won the regular-season matchup 73-62 on Feb. 21.
Prediction: Notre Dame by 6.

CSC final: No. 1 Capital Prep vs. No. 2 Classical Magnet at New Haven Athletic Center, 6 p.m.
Capital Prep has won 17 straight games, including a 15-point win over Classical Magnet. They have a fabulous guard in sophomore Khalil Dukes. He's worth a look for the New Haven area fans looking to see a game.
Prediction: Capital Prep

ECC final: No. 1 New London vs. No. 7 Stonington
New London hasn't played a close game in over a month. That won't change Friday.
Prediction: New London.

Shoreline final: No. 1 Valley Regional vs. No. 7 Old Lyme at Old Saybrook, 7 p.m.
Old Lyme has pulled two seeded upsets to get here, knocking off No. 3 Hyde and No. 2 Cromwell in the quarterfinals and semifinals, respectively. Can the Wildcats pull off one more? Valley Regional hasn't lost a league game yet and is searching  for its first league title since 1984.
Prediction: Valley gets that elusive title.
