Class M title game rematch

Tonight will be the Class M state finals rematch from a year ago, Career vs. Trinity Catholic, this time in the Class L quarterfinals at Wilbur Cross High at 6.

Trinity was able to dominate in the fourth quarter behind center Pascal Chidiebere Chukwu, guard Schradac Casimir and the rest of the Crusaders. Check out our story from last year's final at the Mohegan Sun.

Trinity has added transfer Jason Boswell from St. Patrick's. But the Crusaders have had some mysterious losses (Greenwich comes to mind) and were beaten by Bassick in the FCIAC tournament final.

Career has had just a pair of 1-point losses to Hillhouse. The Panthers avenged those losses in the SCC tournament final and then rallied from an 18-point, third-quarter deficit to beat Elm City rival Wilbur Cross in the second round. If the Panthers fall that far behind against Trinity, they won't come back this time.

But last year should provide ample motivation for Treyvon Moore, Kenny Armstead and the rest of the team. The Panthers are a very good defensive team in full-court pressure and their active matchup zone.
When you move up in division, as both these teams did and should have, these are the great matchups you get at this point of the tournament. And it should go down to the wire.

Get to Cross early, folks.
