40 hours later, tie basketball game finally ends

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) First Joshua Linson knocked out the lights. Then he knocked out Winston-Salem State, ending a basketball game that took three days to complete.

The sophomore guard broke a 40-hour tie by hitting a go-ahead 3-pointer with 24 seconds left Friday to lead Johnson C. Smith to an 89-86 overtime win against the Rams in a bizarre game.

The Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association game was suspended Wednesday night when Linson's full-court heave with 0.3 seconds remaining shattered two lights suspended from the ceiling about 20 feet above the court, leaving one dangling perilously from a wire.
