League tournament predictions, day 3

Here we go:

SCC tournament final - at Quinnipiac University
No. 1 Hillhouse vs. No. 2 Fairfield Prep, 7 p.m.: The matchup everyone hoped for and the one both teams predicted would happen again. Both teams are fearless and both teams should be amped up for this matchup. We know the strengths of each team. We know both teams have few weaknesses, if any.

I've gone back and forth all day on this one. I think the difference should be Hillhouse's motivation to avenge their only loss. Prep already did. And the Academics have been here before: Hillhouse in the final seconds.

Shoreline tournament semifinals - at site of higher seed
No. 4 Hyde at No. 1 Valley Regional, 7 p.m.: No one has beaten Valley yet in the league and there's no reason to think anything will change here.
No. 3 Cromwell at No. 2 Old Lyme: Either way, it's a rematch of one of the last two Shoreline Conference tournament finals against Valley. I will go with: Cromwell.

SWC tournament semifinals - at Newtown
No. 2 Bethel vs. No. 3 Notre Dame-Fairfield, 6 p.m.: Bethel beat ND in OT during the regular season. But this is Notre Dame's time of the year normally: Notre Dame.
No. 1 Bunnell vs. No. 4 Kolbe Cathedral, 8 p.m.: Bunnell only won by one last time out. Expect another tight one, and the same result: Bunnell.

FCIAC Tournament semifinals - at Fairfield Warde
No. 6 Wilton vs. No. 2 Trinity Catholic: Wilton i the only team to beat St. Joseph this season and eliminated Westhill in the quarterfinals. But Trinity is simply better: Trinity Catholic.
No. 1 St. Joseph vs. No. 4 Bridgeport Central: This was a tremendous game the first time around. St. Joseph has been arguably the best team in the state over the past three seasons, but hasn't won this tournament. Upset special: Central

CSC tournament semifinals - at Floyd Little Athletic Center, New Haven
Top two seeds move on: No. 1 Capital Prep and No. 2 Kaynor Tech
