The pairings are out and the Greenwich High School girls basketball team, having their best season in quite awhile, will enter the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference class LL tournament as the No. 13 seed.

Posting a regular season record of 15-5, Big Red will host a first round game this season, a lot easier than traveling up to Storrs for a tournament game like they did last year. Greenwich’s first round opponent will be No. 20 seed Bristol Central High School, a team from the CCC which enters the class LL tourney with a record of 13-7.

The game against the Rams will be played at GHS Monday night at 7.

If the Lady Cardinals advance, they will play the winner of the No. 4 seed South Windsor High School versus No. 29 seeded Norwalk High School game. Norwalk, a fellow FCIAC team, enters the tournament with a 9-11 record, while the fourth-seeded Bobcats, out of the CCC, are 18-2 overall. The game will be played Thursday, March 6 at the higher seeded team’s home court. Game time is slated for 7.

Overall, FCIAC foe Danbury High School, with a 19-1 regular season record, is the class LL top seed. The second seed, also with a 19-1 regular season record, is Lauralton Hall. Both Danbury and Lauralton Hall earned first round byes and will start play in the class LL tourney March 6.

In total, the FCIAC is well-represented in the class LL tournament. In addition to Greenwich, Norwalk and Danbury, seven other teams from the conference will be in action. In fact, two of the opening round games will have two FCIAC teams facing off against each other.

No. 14 seed Fairfield Warde High School (15-5) will host No. 19 seed Trumbull High School (13-7) in the opening round, with the winner playing against either third seed Mercy High School or No. 30 Crosby in the second round.

In what will be the most evenly-matched game, the No. 15 seeded Fairfield Ludlowe High School Falcons (15-5) will host No. 18 seed Ridgefield High School (13-7), with the winner getting Lauralton Hall in the second round.

No. 8 seed Westhill, coming into the class LL tournament with a 16-4 regular season record, will host No. 25 seed New Milford High School (11-9).

It could be an all Stamford second round game. In the first round, No. 9 seeded Stamford High School (16-4) will host No. 24 seeded Cheshire High School (11-9) and if the Vikings and Black Knights win at home, it will be Westhill hosting Stamford on March 6.

Entering the tournament as the No. 28 seed, and with a 9-11 regular season record, Darien High School has the tall order of traveling to No. 5 seed Amity, which finished the season 18-2 overall.
