League tournament predictions - round two

Monday's action should be pretty good. We will see if the predictions are just as good:

SCC tournament semifinals - at East Haven
No. 2 Fairfield Prep vs. No. 3 Wilbur Cross, 6 p.m.: First matchup of the season between these two teams. Cross will try to be very physical with the Jesuits. Will be interesting to see how many shots Paschal Chukwu can block - and if he picks up fouls in the process. This game will be close, but Prep has more answers on offense: Prep by single digits.
No. 1 Hillhouse vs. No. 4 Notre Dame-West Haven, 7:45 p.m.: Notre Dame has had a couple of terrific comebacks the last two days - rallying to beat Amity in overtime in the quarterfinals Saturday (pictured above), falling short to Stratford in a makeup game Sunday. How much do the Green Knights have left? An upset under normal circumstances would be asking a lot - Hillhouse.

NVL tournament semifinals - at Wilby
No. 6 Watertown vs. No. 2 Wilby, 5 p.m.: Jon Mitchell and Ed Hill are two great players, but this is a tough spot for the defending champs against Walter Wright and Co. - Wilby.
No. 4 Wolcott vs. No. 1 Crosby, 7 p.m.: Wolcott's Mike Bozzuto vs. Crosby's Tyshon Rogers is your matchup of stars. But before Watertown won it last yera, Crosby owned this tournament: Crosby.

CCC tournament quarterfinals
#4 New Britain vs #5 Hartford Public at Bulkeley, 5 p.m.: New Britain in a close game
#1 Simsbury vs #8 Glastonbury at Bulkeley, 7 p.m.: It's been an impressive season for Simsbury, earning the top seed ahead of plenty of very solid programs. One of those is Glastonbury and Jordan Butler and Company move on by a whisker: Glastonbury.
#3 East Hartford vs #6 Bloomfield at Maloney, 5 p.m.: East Hartford loses Cane Broome to prep school and still is among the best programs in the CCC: East Hartford.
#2 Windsor vs #10 Newington at Maloney, 7 p.m.: Windsor is healthy now: Look out: Windsor.
