Edgerton High survived another close call Thursday night in Rock Valley boys basketball.


The undefeated Crimson Tide, No. 7 in the AP Division 2 state ratings, jumped off to 19-7 advantage and led all the way but needed two free throws in the last 37 seconds to seal a 47-43 victory over visiting Walworth Big Foot.


Edgerton, a 41-37 winner at Clinton last Friday, improved to 6-0 for the season and remained tied with Orfordville Parkview for the conference lead at 4-0. The matchup of the co-leaders, which was postponed Dec. 11, has been rescheduled for Jan. 14 at Edgerton.


Bryan Gregory, a 6-4 junior center, scored 10 of his game-high 22 points in the fourth quarter to help Edgerton stave off Big Foot (2-4, 1-3). The Tide took a 32-24 lead into the final period, but the Chiefs pulled within 45-43 in the final minute.


Travis Towns hit one of two free throws to make it 46-43 with 37 seconds left. Gregory was fouled on a breakaway steal and made the final free throw with 16 seconds remaining, and Big Foot was unable to get off a shot as time expired.


Nathan Nagel, a sophomore forward, scored 10 points to spark Big Foot’s fourth-quarter comeback and finished with 18.
