Games to watch

Waterford at St. Bernard, Tuesday, 7 p.m.: Waterford is coming off a dramatic 3-point victory at home thanks to Nolan Gollsneider’s three-pointer with 1.8 seconds left. Road contest at St. Bernard won’t be easy.
Sacred Heart at Naugatuck, Saturday, 5:30 p.m.: Greyhounds took one on the chin Saturday at St. Paul and dropped out of the top 10. A win here could put Naugatuck back in.
Notre Dame-West Haven at Fairfield Prep, Monday, 6 p.m.: Always seems to be a low-scoring, drag-it-out battle when the two longtime SCC foes meet at the original Alumni Hall.
Windsor at Northwest Catholic, Monday, 6:45 p.m.: Right now, it will be No. 2 at No. 3 in this CCC showdown. Northwest Catholic beat Windsor in last year’s CCC tournament semifinals.
