The sequel matches the original

Crosby vs. Wilby Thursday night was just as good as the original. Crosby won this one 88-87 with Tyshon Rogers being the hero this time with a driving layup with 4 seconds left.

A packed house at the Palace rivaled the crowd back on Jan. 14 at Wilby when Walter Wright played the hero, making a 3-point shot at the buzzer in double overtime to give Wilby the win in what was a matchup of undefeated NVL teams at the time.

And much like that game, this one had a crucial turnover with under 10 seconds left that helped set up the final shot. Check out more coverage by Joe Palladino from the Waterbury Republican-American on this classic game. It was back-and-forth action virtually the entire way and well seeing the rebroadcast on CPTV Sports (check your local listings for air times).

Count on these two teams facing one another one more time for the NVL championship later this month.
