Who's No. 1 now?

With Wilbur Cross beating Hillhouse 62-59 on Tuesday, that will mean a new No. 1 team atop the New Haven Register Top 10 poll. It would see Cross would be the likely candidate, being No. 2 last week and beating the top team.
But I don't believe it will be unanimous. Trinity Catholic, Windsor and even New London could get some consideration, assuming all win their remaining games this week. My vote? If you beat the top team and you are in the top five, you belong at No. 1: the Governors of Wilbur Cross.

Cross has been in this spot before, an undefeated team making its way toward the playoffs. That team in 2000, led by Jason Benton, won its first 24 games before falling to Bridgeport Central in the quarterfinals. It's been 23 years since Cross last won a state championship (1985).
It will be interesting to see how the Governors fare the rest of the way in the SCC, how they handle the pressure of being No. 1 - something Hillhouse became very accustomed to.
