Avon’s Jordan Williams drives to the basket in Sunday’s Division III championship game against Waterford.

Notre Dame-Fairfield was voted the No. 1 team in the state as voted by state coaches and media members in the New Haven Register/GameTimeCT top 10 poll. It was an unanimous selection for the only undefeated team in Connecticut (27-0) that beat Sacred Heart-Waterbury to win the CIAC Division I championship on Sunday, 65-60.

For the first time this year, Avon received votes in the poll. The Falcons (16-10), who lost to Waterford, 90-67 in the Division III championship game, was ranked No. 19 with 37 votes. Waterford (25-2) ended the season ranked No. 5 – the highest ranked team outside of Division I. Seven of the top 10 teams in the poll were in Division I.

Division V champion Cromwell, that beat Canton in the semifinals, was ranked No. 11 about 70 points behind No. 10 Kolbe Cathedral, who won the Division IV championship.
