STAMFORD – Chris Zajac, the 6-foot-8 senior center on the Staples’ boys basketball team, was right to the point.
“That’s the greatest win in Staples’ history,” Zajac said, without hesitation.
It would indeed be a tall task to find one that comes even close.
Trailing by as many as 18 points in the fourth quarter, Staples staged an improbable comeback, eventually defeating Fairfield Warde 57-55 in overtime in the CIAC Div. II semifinals Wednesday night at Westhill.
