Part one of the two-day CIAC basketball championships at the Mohegan Sun proved to be pretty rote, unless you’re a member of the Shoreline Conference.
Day two has already been crazy and it’s not even noon, thanks to the wild DOUBLE overtime Class S game between Weaver and Granby Memorial, which the Bears somehow rallied to win when most at press row figured it was over at halftime. (It was only the second double OT CIAC final — the first was the 1989 Class L championship game when Bassick beat Harding.)
If the rest of the day is like that, it’s going to be very memorable leading up to the big one — Fairfield Prep vs. Hillhouse, Part IV.
A quick word on the Prep/Hillhouse TV situation, since it’s the only game of the eight not broadcast live on CPTV Sports. CIAC media guy Joel Cookson told me last night that MSG Varsity has first rights to any games involving team’s from Fairfield County and picked the Class LL final, which won’t be broadcast until Thursday.
So if you want to see this one, best bet is to head down to Uncasville.
Anyways, here’s some links if you’re in front of the computer and want to follow.

As Jim Calhoun might say, should be a good one. Or in this case, ones.
