Holy Cross girls host Torrington in battle of unbeatens

Is it too early to hype a high school basketball game?
Maybe it is, but who cares? Tomorrow night, the Holy Cross girls host Torrington at 7 o’clock in a battle of 3-0 NVL teams.
When looking for NVL girls basketball championship royalty, look no further than these two programs. There may also be no more spirited rivalry in NVL girls basketball than Holy Cross and Torrington. As a matter of fact, the teams have alternated NVL tourney titles over the past three years, the Lady Raiders in 2013 and 2015, and the Crusaders in 2014. Before 2013, it was Holy Cross on top for three straight seasons (2010-2012), all at Torrington’s expense. The Crusaders claimed NVL titles In the past eight years (2008-2015), 2014 was the only one where the Lady Raiders weren’t in the NVL final.
Back to the present.
Holy Cross is coming off a 56-41 win over Kennedy. Crusader standout RaShana Siders had 20 points in the victory. Idalis Miranda tallied 11 points while Caitlin Cipriano added 10.
For Torrington, Brie Pergola posted 24 points and 9 rebounds in a 66-28 win over Derby. Caitlyn Cornish added 10 points in the victory
In last year’s only regular season meeting, Holy Cross beat Torrignton 69-66 in overtime. It was the only loss for the Lady Raiders in the regular season.
Torrington scored its revenge in the NVL Tournament championship game with a 66-65 victory at Sacred Heart. 
It may be too early to determine a NVL champion tomorrow, but two of the NVL’s top programs will know where they stand after the game.
