Wilton Boys Basketball Begin Long-Awaited Playoffs

WILTON, Conn. - While the Wilton High girls basketball team grabbed many of the headlines this winter, the boys also snapped a long playoff drought. The Warrior boys will play in their first state tournament game since 2000 on Monday evening at 6 p.m.

Wilton takes on University High School of Hartford at the Sports and Medical Sciences Academy in the first round of the Class L state tournament.

It was an astonishing turnaround year for the Wilton boys, after posting a 2-18 record last year. The boys were perennial basement dwellers, enduring a 41-game losing streak in the early 2000s.

That all changed this season with a 10-10 regular season finish that included big wins over conference playoff qualifiers Danbury and Bridgeport Central. The Warriors won four of their final six games to finish with .500 winning percentage.

Wilton is led by multi-sport stars Chris Nugent and Sean Carroll. The Warriors are coached by Tim Callcouch.
