Fourteen teams have qualified for the SCC Girls Basketball playoffs, which begin Thursday, Feb. 20.  One additional team -- West Haven – has a chance to qualify once they win their eighth game on Tuesday, Feb. 18.    If West Haven qualifies, it will be the 15th seed.   

Daniel Hand (15-1), Sheehan (14-2), Sacred Heart Academy (13-3) and East Haven (12-4) have secured the top four seeds.    As the top seed, Daniel Hand has earned a first-round bye regardless of whether the tournament has 14 or 15 teams.   

The result of one more counting game – North Haven at Jonathan Law (Feb. 18) – will determine seeds five through 12. 

Guilford will be the 13th seed and Amity Regional the 14th seed.

Playoff seeding is determined by teams’ winning percentage of their 16 “counting” games scheduled by the league.
