Tuesday’s best

A daily planner to the best in sports in the area ...
Well, most likely it’s going to be best to stay inside and dry, but if somehow this storm misses us, there’s plenty to of exceptional high school action in the area tonight.

In high school hockey, No. 2 New Canaan travels to No. 1 Hamden for a 6:30 p.m. game. Hamden has won back-to-back state titles, but word of mouth through some coaches is that this might be New Canaan’s year with a lot of talent and depth.

In girls basketball, No. 1 Mercy looks to avenge its lone loss of the season against No. 2 Hillhouse at the New Haven Athletic Center at 7 p.m. Both teams are 10-1. Hillhouse topped Mercy 55-47 in the season opener for both teams.

In boys basketball, Valley Regional (7-1) gets the chance to prove its the class of the Shoreline when it travels to play defending conference champions Hyde (5-3) at Fair Haven Middle School at 7:30 p.m. Last year these two teams met in the Class S semifinals and during the regular season Hyde won a thriller in double overtime.

You can also check out No. 3 Career (9-0) when it plays host to Lyman Hall (8-2) or travel to Middletown to see Xavier (6-3) take on Hillhouse (6-1) at 7 p.m.
