Game Day: Breaking Down Today’s Boys & Girls Basketball Schedule

Here is a breakdown of today’s FCIAC boys and girls basketball games.

Boys Basketball

  • Norwalk @ Bassick, 4
  • Fairfield Warde @ Darien, 4:30
  • New Canaan @ Danbury, 4:30
  • Brien McMahon @ Stamford, 5
  • Staples @ Trumbull, 5
  • Harding @ Westhill, 5
  • Wilton @ Ridgefield, 7

Game of the Day: Wilton at Ridgefield. The Warriors certainly have not looked like championship contenders after a 1-1 start that included losing at Fairfield Warde on a layup at the buzzer Tuesday night. The question: is Wilton off to a slow start due to a two-week quarantine and repeated delays or, well, not really a contender? There is a shrinking list of teams that look like they can threaten the Tigers’ quest for a fourth FCIAC title in five years, and they will not be showing their biggest rival any mercy.

Curious about: Fairfield Warde at Darien. The Mustangs have been all over the map thus far. How will they play coming off the Wilton win on the road against the Blue Wave?

Girls Basketball

  • Trumbull @ Staples, 5
  • Danbury @ New Canaan, 5
  • Fairfield Ludlowe @ Greenwich, 5
  • Ridgefield @ Wilton, 5
  • Darien @ Fairfield Warde, 5
  • Stamford @ Brien McMahon, 5
  • Bassick @ Norwalk, 5

Game of the Day: Trumbull at Staples. Game of the day, one of the games of the season. The Wreckers are a league-best 5-0, with wins over Danbury and now Fairfield Ludlowe, on Tuesday in overtime. They get no time to enjoy that victory as they host the Eagles, who also own a close win over the Falcons and have rolled since opening with a loss to Ridgefield. How will Staples handle Trumbull’s defensive pressure and depth? Can the Wreckers continue to get balanced scoring, and who will step up? A lot of questions, we will see which team has more answers.

Curious about: Danbury at New Canaan. The Hatters are 1-3, with the losses coming against league contenders. The Rams (3-2) have played well with the return of coach Kim Palmer.
