It’s only a regular season game, but all eyes figure to descend on Fairfield’s Alumni Hall tonight when No. 2 Fairfield Prep hosts No. 1 Hillhouse in a SCC showdown.

The Jesuits had been No. 3 in the New Haven Register state poll, but Windsor lost for the first time last week, moving Prep up a notch to set up this epic encounter, which tips off at 7 p.m.

    This is not a epic matchup for HH, just a regular game, When has FFP obtained HH status ? In 2008 when FFP beat HH in the playoffs that was against HH ,s bench , the starters were being disciplined for violating team rules and lack of effort. The coach never put the starters in (which I agree with), HH just played a epic game against the #9 team in NJ ( and won). The HOUSE going away!
