BOYS’ BASKETBALL

Phillips Exeter 58, Choate 47

Sunday, Mar. 3, 2013, at Exeter

In the NEPSAC Class A final, top-seeded Exeter (25-1) made school history by winning its first title, beating second-seeded Choate (21-4). Led by Williams College bound Duncan Robinson (24 points) and Chris Braley (15 points), Exeter held a 9-point half-time lead that it stretched to as many as 19. But Choate hung tough and forced Exeter to fight for its 18th-consecutive win. “This team is obviously very, very special,” said coach Jay Tilton. “It will hold a place in Exeter history with putting a banner up.” In the loss, the Wild Boars were led by Jeff Coby and Pete Weston, who each scored 15 points.
