SCC Championship

SCC girls’ basketball championship
No. 2 Hillhouse (20-2)
vs. No. 1 Career (20-1)
‰WHEN: Today, 7 p.m.
‰WHERE: TD Bank Sports Center, Hamden
‰WHAT TO LOOK FOR: Hillhouse will need another strong performance from its role players, who were critical in the Academics win over Mercy in the semifinals. Expect the Panthers to pressure Hillhouse, and try to take Bria Holmes and Colleene Smith out of the game. Look for Hillhouse to use a zone and make the Panthers beat them from the outside. Keep an eye on the Academics size advantage inside.
‰CHAMPIONSHIP APPEARANCES: This is Hillhouse’s 11th appearance and fourth straight in an SCC final. The Academics have won sixth SCC championships, including last year.  Career is making its fifth appearance. They have won the championship twice.
‰YOU SHOULD KNOW: Career beat Hillhouse in both meetings during the regular season: 60-52 on Dec. 29 and 59-42 on Feb. 1.
