It’s now official.

The brackets have been posted and the Greenwich High School boys basketball team is ready to participate in the upcoming Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference class LL tournament.

With a regular season record of 11-9, the Cardinals enter the postseason as the No. 24 seed in class LL. Their opponent on March 4 will be quite familiar, as Big Red will travel to No. 9 seeded Ridgefield High School for a game against a fellow FCIAC. Game time is currently slated for 7 p.m.

“We still have a sour taste in our mouths from losing to them in our place,” Greenwich High head coach Bill Brehm said. “Hopefully they are ready to go get them. They are going to have to leave it all on the floor. I think Ridgefield will be a tough place to play. We need to not turn the ball over and limit their big guys.”

If Greenwich High comes out victorious, they will play the winner of the Staples High School versus New Britain High School game, also scheduled for March 4 at 7. March 6 will be the date of the second round game.

The Cards are one of many FCIAC teams making an appearance in the class LL tournament. In addition to Ridgefield and Staples, St. Joseph will be the No. 3 seed, Bridgeport Central the No. 10 seed, Westhill is the No. 13 seed and Norwalk is the No. 20 seed.

In the class L postseason, Trinity Catholic is the top seed in the tourney. Wilton High will be a No. 10 seed, Bassick is the No. 17 seed, Fairfield Ludlowe is seeded 29th and Harding rounds out class L as the No. 33 seed.
