CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Joshua Linson finished what he started, breaking a 40-hour tie game by knocking down a go-ahead 3-pointer with 24 seconds left to lift Johnson C. Smith over Winston-Salem State 89-86 in overtime Friday in the completion of 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 about 20 feet above the court, leaving one dangling perilously from a wire.
The game was postponed until Friday because of safety concerns with the score tied at 76.
Winston-Salem State had the option to decide the outcome by a coin flip, but instead elected to travel the 90 minutes back to Charlotte to play a five-minute overtime period, which lasted 14 minutes in real time.
