In a setting it had waited many years for, the Wilton High boys basketball team picked a bad time to play its worst game of the season.Playing on their home court, the second-seeded Warriors got off to slow start and never recovered Tuesday night, losing to third-seed Danbury, 68-48, in the opener of an FCIAC semifinal doubleheader at the Zeoli Field House in Wilton.Danbury, the defending conference champion, will now meet fifth-seed Ridgefield in the finals Thursday night (7 p.m.) at the Zeoli Field House. The Tigers upset top-seed Trumbull, 73-66, in the second semifinal Tuesday.\u201cWe basically got out-played in every facet of the game,\u201d Wilton coach Joel Geriak said following his team's 20-point loss. \u201cWe had a poor practice yesterday and for some reason we weren\u2019t mentally ready tonight.\u201d\u201cIt\u2019s the worst game we played all season; we played poorly and the focus wasn\u2019t there,\u201d Geriak added. \u201cIt\u2019s possible that the kids got over-hyped for the game. We missed seven layups in the first quarter, got out-rebounded, and had a poor night from the free-throw line. We also are a young team from a playoff perspective, as we really have only one senior that has played in this type of game.\u201d\u201cTake nothing away from Danbury; they are a good team and were the better team tonight. They didn\u2019t do anything different than I expected ... it\u2019s just that they got the job done and we didn\u2019t.\u201dWilton\u2019s Andrew Smith opened the scoring with a 3-pointer, but the Hatters then went on a 16-0 run before Smith hit the Warriors' only other basket in the first quarter, which ended with Danbury ahead, 16-5.Things didn\u2019t get any better for Wilton in the second quarter, as the Hatters' lead grew to 33-16 at halftime.Searching for the right combination on offense, Geriak rotated players in and out during the second half. But none of the tinkering clicked, as Danbury increased its lead to 46-24 through three quarters and then closed out the victory.\u201cBeing down a lot with time running out I tried some different lineups to find something that worked,\u201d Geriak said.\u201cBut also it gave me a chance to get some playoff playing time for some of our younger players, which could benefit us next season.\u201dNotes: Jah Joyner led the way for Danbury, pouring in a game-high 20 points. Senior co-captains Denali Burton and Javon Hernandez each added 16 points.Smith had a team-high 11 points for Wilton.Each team went to the free-throw line 30 times and had three players foul out. Wilton was 18-of-30 from the line, and Danbury went 15-of-30.Wilton will now await the start of the Division II state tournament. The Warriors are seeded third and have a first-round bye before playing a second-round game at home on March 6th.\u00a0Danbury 68, Wilton 48 Danbury\u00a0 16 17 13 22 \u2014 68Wilton\u00a0 5 11 8 24 \u2014 48Danbury:\u00a0Denali Burton 6 4-9 16; Keyon Moore 1 2-6 4; Javon Hernandez 5 4-6-16; Jaden Cook 3 0-0 6; Ramir Rivera 1 0-0 2; Marson James 1 0-0 3; Artez Taft 0 1-2 1; Jah Joyner 8 4-7 20.Wilton: Nick Kronenberg 2 4-6 8; Kyle Hyzy 3 3-4 9; Ryan Biberon 1 3-4 5; Ryan Schriber 1 2-3 5; Tucker Walden 0 2-6 2; Zayvion Eusebe 3 2-4 8; Andrew Smith 4 2-3 11.3-pointers: D: Hernandez 2, James; W: Smith, Schriber.
