Preseason polls are educated guesses as far as slotting... they both pretty much all have the same teams except for one having Windsor and the other having Sheehan. It’s a long season...The Courant poll differs quite a bit from the Gametime-Register poll, in that St Joe's is ranked at #2, right behind Hand. I'm not sold on Hand yet, given what they lost from last year, and with the SCC conference as a whole still going through some down years. Xavier, NDWH, West Haven, Prep, are not as competitive statewide as they were just a couple years ago. If Hand blows out Norwalk on 10-18, then I'll be a believer. Even after that Hand would have to get past New Canaan and St Joe's in the playoffs in order to run the table again.
