SCC Championship

It's about 30 minutes until tip off here at the TD Bank Sports Center between No. 7 Branford and No. 1 Hillhouse.

Some pregame notes...

Hillhouse is 19-3 and have won its third straight SCC Hammonasset Division title this season.

This is the 12th time the Academics have made the SCC tournament and they have won a league-best five titles, including last year. Hillhouse is looking for its ninth title-game appearance.

Branford is 19-4 and finished second in the SCC Oronoque Division. The Hornets are making their ninth SCC tournament appearance. This is their third title game appearance and they have never won the title.

Branford is looking to become the lowest seeded team to win an SCC title (Sacred Heart Academy won in 1996 as the No. 5 seed).

The No. 1 seed has won the league tournament eight of the 15 years.

This is the first meeting between Branford and Hillhouse this season.
