Live Thursday: 2016 FCIAC Boys Basketball Championship
After a slow start this season, Westhill gets to defend its 2015 FCIAC boys basketball title against top-seed Danbury, which led the FCIAC most of the 2015-16 season. The 2016 FCIAC Basketball Championship will be carried in live streaming HD video on the HAN Network at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 3.
No. 1 Danbury easily put away No. 4 Wilton on Thursday night, 77-41, in a game carried live on HAN. Danbury (20-2, 17-1)'s only conference loss this season was to Trumbull, which lost to Westhill in the first semifinal game on Thursday. Westhill (15-7, 12-6) led most of the way against the Eagles, winning 53-43 in a game also carried live on HAN.
The last time Danbury won the FCIAC in boys basketball was 1992. The team it beat in that final, Westhill. #ctbb

While Westhill beat Norwalk for the FCIAC Boys Basketball Championship last year, Danbury hasn't won the Fairfield County title since 1992, which Hearst CT's Scott Ericson pointed out on Twitter, against Westhill.
