SCC final tonight

You can read about the semifinal-round coverage here

Here is a capsule look at tonight's game:

No. 1 CAREER (21-1) vs. No. 2 HILLHOUSE (20-2)

When: Today, 7 p.m.

Where: TD Bank Sports Center, Quinnipiac University, Hamden


Tickets: $5.

Championship game appearances: This is Career's second appearance, winning the title in 2002. This is Hillhouse's ninth appearance, going 4-4.

What to look for: A chance for Career to sweep the season series. Career opened the season by beating Hillhouse, then won the second game on a buzzer-beater from Earl Hassel. The Panthers has a fine nucleus led by senior co-captains Kevin Hoff and Brandyn Benson and other strong contributors in Treyvon Moore, who had a game-high 16 points in Tuesday's semifinal-round win over Fairfield Prep, and Kenny Armstead (14). The Panthers won't wilt when Hillhouse brings its full-court pressure from guards Bobby Bynum, Andre Anderson and Dana Griffin. The Academics will need Freddie Wilson to be better than the nine points he scored in the semifinals. He had 28 in the last game against Career. Expect Drew Crudup to be a factor, as will as Louis Ellison in the rebounding department. While there won't be a buzzer-beating shot to determine the SCC champion, it will be tight in the final minutes. And Career will come out on top.
