Tuesday's Best

A daily look at the best of the local sports scene ...

In high school boys basketball, two very good rivalry games on tap.

First, Hopkins travels to take on Hamden Hall at 5 p.m. Hoops Morelli writes that "this is a makeup game from last Tuesday due to a snowstorm. Hamden Hall won the first meeting 87-81 on Jan. 16. Darren Payen had a triple-double (12 points, 13 rebounds, 12 blocks) for Hamden Hall and Lucas Hausman had a game-high 34 points for Hopkins the last time."

Then at 6 p.m. at the New Haven Athletic Center, Wilbur Cross takes on No. 3 Career at 6 p.m. Career can wrap up the SCC Oronoque with a victory. And a loss means Cross would be 0-4 against the city schools. according to Morelli.

In girls basketball, you can get to the NHAC early for a 4 p.m. tip-off for No. 7 Career vs. Wilbur Cross in a game that Chris Hunn predicts will determine the SCC Oronoque title. 
-- The UConn women travel to play West Virginia in a 7 p.m. game in Morgantown. West Virginia is ranked No. 17 nationally and UConn No. 2. West Virginia was upset over the weekend by Pittsburgh. The game will be on CBS College Sports. Check your local cable listing to see if you get it. It is mostly a premium sports service.
-- There are plenty of local college games to attend, as Albertus Magnus, New Haven and Southern Connecticut all play host to men's/women's doubleheaders.
The schedule:
Men: Mount Ida at Alberus Magnus, 5:30 p.m.; Assumption at New Haven, 7:30 p.m.; Pace at Southern Conn., 7:30 p.m.
The SCSU men are in eighth place in the 16-team NE-10 and with a win over Pace would improve to .500 in the conference under first-year coach Mike Donnelly. Considering how far this program dropped, that is quite a turnaround.
Women: Assumption at New Haven, 5:30 p.m.; Pace at Southern Conn., 5:30 p.m.; Simmons at Albertus Magnus, 7:30 p.m.
Assumption and Pace are two of the top four teams in the NE-10, trailing DII powerhouses Bentley and Franklin Pierce. SCSU and UNH have both struggled thus far.

-- In women's hockey, New Hampshire visits Quinnipiac at the TD Bank Sports Center at 7 p.m. The Bobcats, who have been in and out of the Top 10 rankings nationally the past few weeks, have never beaten UNH of Hockey East, dropping all seven decisions.
