Losses puts spin on N-O

Wilson, Newfane both lose, but can still share title on Thursday.

Losses by both Niagara-Orleans League boys basketball frontrunners on Tuesday sets the stage for a fantastic finish on Thursday.

Visiting CSAT nipped Wilson, 45-42; while Akron (8-5) edged past visiting Newfane, 48-45.

That sets the stage for Thursday’s regular-season finales as Wilson (10-3 N-O) plays at Royalton-Hartland, while the Panthers (10-3 N-O) host surprising CSAT (9-4 N-O).

A number of scenerios can come out of Friday’s slate of games. If both Wilson and Newfane lose, there will be a three-way tie for first. If either Wilson or Newfane win and the other loses, the winner is the N-O champ out-right.
