3. Amity-Woodbridge (4-1) 4
Bottom line: Round One vs. conference heavyweight Shelton is tonight
4. Trumbull (6-1) 3
Bottom line: Missed chance to climb rankings vs. Staples
5. Shelton (7-1) 5
Bottom line: Would have liked to win one game vs. Mills
6. Glastonbury (6-0) 7
Bottom line: Has tough spots on the horizon
7. Enfield (5-1) 10
Bottom line: Win over Maloney is last time it will play top 10 team this year
8. Maloney (6-1) 8

9. Southington (3-2) 9
Bottom line: Poised to go on a run
10. Joel Barlow (5-2) 6
Bottom line: Only losses came to top-ranked Mills and No. 5 Shelton
1. Amity (4-1)
The Spartans play host to Shelton in a crucial early-season conference battle. Both teams realize that one loss in the conference could cost them an outright title.
2. Shelton (7-1)
Schedule eases up a bit after Amity. This week has been a good prep for the state tournament.
3. Hand-Madison (4-3)
The Tigers should ease their way into both the SCC and state tournaments but coach Tom Brady will be looking for some quality wins.
4. Cheshire (2-2)
Its early but the Rams need to turn it on to reach the state tournament. Cheshire must have the toughest schedule in the state.
5. Xavier-Middletown (3-5)
The three wins are only a bonus for the Falcons, who have legitimately turned the corner on the court.

I've got to believe that his friend, who beat him up pretty badly last week, will be eliminated in the first 15 minutes next week.
Chip says that last week's episode may be Junior's farewell performance. I hope not. He's been fantastic since the Alzheimer's kicked in.
My pick for the finale is that Tony thinks that Christopher is coming for him but it is Christopher who ends up taking a bullet to save Tony.
The shooter .... ?
I'm still mulling that one over.
Let me know what you think.
