Boys' hoop Thursday night showdowns

The battle for the Naugatuck Valley League championship was not decided until the final seconds on Thursday night, but Crosby did prevail for its sixth straight league title at sold-out Wilby High School.

Crosby point guard Anthony Ireland was named the tournament MVP, getting a key steal at midcourt in the final seconds to help preserve the win. Torrington center Jordan Williams had another ho-hum performance: 52 points, 20 rebounds. It was the fourth time Williams had gone for 50 or more this season, the third time against Crosby.

In other action...
Stamford came from 11 points down in regulation to force overtime in the FCIAC tournament final. Then came a second overtime.
When that overtime finished, Stamford had emerged with a 65-63 win over previously-undefeated Trinity Catholic in the game played at Fairfield Warde. This was Stamford coach Jim Moriarty's first FCIAC championship in 31 years of coaching.

For anyone interested, this game is scheduled to be be replayed at 11 a.m. Sunday morning on MSG.
This also means that Hillhouse, the lone remaining undefeated team in the state, should take over the No. 1 spot in the poll. Hillhouse beat Hamden in the SCC tournament final on Wednesday. Anyone interested in viewing that game, tune in at 8 p.m. Saturday night on WCTX/MyTV9.
