With rivals Ridgefield and Wilton playing for their first FCIAC boys basketball title in league's 51-year history, the league is moving the game to Fairfield University's Alumni Hall.
During Tuesday night's semifinals (which you can watch on-demand on HAN Network) the Fairfield Warde gymnasium was at its 1,700-seat capacity. As the Ridgefield-Danbury game required two overtimes to determine a winner, Wilton and Trumbull fans packed the hallway outside the gym as Fairfield fire marshals and police officers supervised.

The FCIAC tried to get the championship game moved to Western Connecticut State University in Danbury, closer to Ridgefield and Wilton, but was unable to work out a deal, league commissioner Dave Schulz said. Fairfield University offered the league the 2,800-seat Alumni Hall early on Wednesday.
