Wednesday's best

A daily look at the best in sports in the region ...

Well, we can make this easy and copy and paste most of Tuesdays.

The weather postponed three of the four games we had picked to Wednesday, with the high school hockey showdown between No. 1 Hamden and No. 2 New Canaan moving to Thursday.

So Wednesday will feature No. 1 Mercy at No. 2  Hillhouse in girls basketball at 7 p.m. Mercy's lone loss was to Hillhouse in the season opener for both.

In boys basketball, Hillhouse travels to Xavier for a 7 p.m. Southern Connecticut Conference game, and in the Shoreline, Valley Regional travels to play defending champion Hyde at 7:30 p.m. at Fair Haven Middle School. These two teams met in the Class S state semifinals last year and also had a double-overtime game in the regular-season. Both games were won by Hyde, which was 27-0 a year ago.

On the college scene, Yale's second-ranked men's squash team travels to take on the greatest dynasty in collegiate sports history, facing No. 1 Trinity at 6 p.m. The Bantams have won 229 straight matches.

Southern Connecticut's men's and women's basketball teams play host to a NE-10 doubleheader against St. Anselm. The women play at 5:30, the men at 7:30 p.m.

The men are 9-6 overall, 6-6 in conference play. New Haven's Chazz McCarter is averaging 10.6 points and 5.2 rebounds for the Owls.

It's also a book drive collection night at Moore Fieldhouse.
New Haven plays host to St. Michael's in a basketball doubleheader at 5:30 and 7:30 at Charger Gymnasium. The men play at 5:30, the women at 7:30.
