Wilton (10-9, 9-6 FCIAC) will be one of the eight teams vying for a conference title beginning Saturday thanks to its second-half surge. Wilton’s full-court press began to create turnovers — including on several inbounding passes following made baskets. Wilton didn’t allow a field goal in the last 6:11 to put the game away.
