Edgerton High used a late second-quarter blitz and a huge advantage on the free-throw line Monday night to keep its share of the Rock Valley boys basketball lead.


With a 45-36 victory over Walworth Big Foot, the visiting Crimson Tide kept pace with Evansville at 11-2 in the conference and improved to 17-2 overall.


Edgerton can clinch a tie for its first championship since 2004 by winning its regular-season finale at home Thursday against Palmyra-Eagle (2-16, 0-13).


The Tide, ranked 10th in AP Division 2 state poll, snapped an 8-8 first-quarter tie with a 13-4 advantage in the second period. Travis Towns sank a pair of three-point goals and Gabe Mitchell added a basket in the final 90 seconds to give Edgerton a 21-12 halftime lead.


Edgerton held the advantage at the foul line, making 21 of 29 attempts to just 2 of 4 for Big Foot (6-13, 5-8).


The Tide’s Bryan Gregory scored 14 points, including eight free throws, while Towns finished with 11 points.


Steven Dowden scored 16 points for Big Foot.
