Tuesday's best

You can head out to see some local high school action and still not miss much of UConn's men's basketball game at Marquette, which tips off at 9 p.m. on SNY

In boys basketball, Xavier (7-4) travels to play Fairfield Prep (8-3) in an SCC Quinnipiac game at 7 p.m. Xavier is 3-1 in the division, Prep is 2-2, tied with Notre Dame and West Haven.
Should be a competitive game as Fairfield Prep tries to snap a three-game losing streak, plus you get to see a game at Alumni Hall. It's old, but it's got character.

Also some rivalry games with Trumbull at St. Joseph, Derby at Ansonia and Stratford at Bunnell, all 7 p.m. games.

And two of the top three area scorers are in action when Wilbur Cross and Gerald McLease (21.4 ppg) play at East Haven and Jimmy Gagliardi (24.6 ppg), also at 7 p.m. Gagliardi has 32 3-pointers in 10 games, though East Haven (3-7) has struggled.

In girls basketball, the top two teams in the SCC Housatonic meet at 7 p.m. when  Lyman Hall travels to Cheshire. Cheshire defeated Lyman Hall earlier this year, 51-44.

There's also plenty of area college men's hoops with Johnson & Wales at Albertus Magnus at 7 p.m., Merrimack at Southern Conn. at 7:30 p.m. and Southern New Hampshire at New Haven at 7:30 p.m.

Former St. Joseph standout Demetrius Jackson plays for SNHU and coach Stan Spirou, who is in his 23rd year.

In women's basketball, Merrimack plays at Southern Conn. at 5:30 p.m. and Southern New Hampshire plays at New Haven, 5:30 p.m.
