Thursday's best

A daily look at the best in the area sports scene...

Amity, which moved to Division I in hockey this season, hosts No. 4 Xavier in at Bennett Rink in West Haven at 6:30 p.m.
The game features two of the area's top four scorers: Xavier's Kurt Johnson (5 goals, 15 assists) and Amity's Corey Shea (9 goals, 7 asssists).
The game will also be on

Quinnipiac's men's basketball team travels to Wagner for a matchup of second-place teams in the Northeast Conference.
Wagner, coached by Danny Hurley and assisted by brother Bobby,  won at Hamden earlier this year, 73-68, so in terms of tiebreakers at the end of the year, this is a key game for the Bobcats.

Wagner has a very nice facility, with an extremely deep section behind the basket. It's a difficult trip from Hamden, about 2 hours, 15 minutes. Not bad on the weekend, but not sure I'd venture on a weeknight, especially with snow in the forecast.

The game will be on WQUN and also available on an internet broadcast for a fee. You can learn more here

Looking ahead, if you were planning on heading to the UConn men's game against Tennessee, the Saturday game is sold out, according to Dave Borges' blog. Also, Dave says there are just limited tickets left for the rest of the season.
