FCIAC girls hoop playoff slate

The Wilton Warriors won their 19th consecutive game and locked up the No. 1 seed for the FCIAC girls basketball tournament with a resounding 72-50 win over the Warde Mustangs on Wednesday night.

Wilton, which is 17-1 in league play, will square off with the Ludlowe Falcons in the quarterfinals on Saturday at Westhill High School in Stamford. Ludlowe nailed down the eighth seed by beating Westhill, 54-45. The Falcons handed Wilton its only loss of the season, 45-42, back on opening night, Dec. 10.

Warde, which is 16-2 in league play, is the No. 2 seed and will face the seventh-seeded St. Joseph Cadets, who are 12-6. Warde beat St. Joseph 64-35 on Feb. 4.

In a couple of other games with playoff implications, Greenwich rolled over Brien McMahon 68-40, and Stamford defeated Trumbull 43-39.

Those results dropped Trumbull (14-4 FCIAC) to the sixth seed, while forging a three-way tie for third place between Greenwich, Stamford, and Ridgefield (all 15-3 FCIAC)

Those three teams are even in head-to-head match-ups this winter, so the quality wins tiebreaker is used, which favors Greenwich based on its 49-47 win over Warde on Jan. 22.

Greenwich takes the No. 3 seed, with Stamford at No. 4 based on its 53-48 win over Ridgefield 53-48 on Jan 16.

Greenwich will face Trumbull, and Stamford will face Ridgefield in Saturday’s quarterfinals.
