SCC Championship

Some pregame thoughts...

Hillhouse lost to Wilbur Cross late in the regular season, a team Branford beat three times this year.

Branford has the size and toughness to matchup with Hillhouse, not the speed though.

Hillhouse has struggled shooting from the perimeter this season, but have lit it up from outside with 13 3-pointers in the last two games.

Branford needs to figure out Hillhouse's matchup zone early in order to have a chance.

Also, the Hornets need the role players to contribute. Courtney Schissler scored 33 of Branford's 45 points last night. Hillhouse coach Catrina Hawley-Stewart won't let that happen.

Only five players for Branford typically get quality minutes and the Hornets have been known to get in foul trouble, so a lack of depth may come into play.

Sometimes suburban schools seem to get intimidated by the city teams. Branford is not one of them.

Bria Holmes and Andreana Thomas seem to be at the top of their game right now. Will that continue tonight.
