In one of the stranger occurrences of the 2013-14 college basketball season, Wednesday’s game between Winston-Salem State and Johnson C. Smith was declared a draw due to a broken light fixture above the court. How’d the fixture break? Johnson C. Smith’s Joshua Linton attempted a full-court heave with the game being tied, and his attempt hit the fixture.
Due to safety concerns the game was called for the time being, with administrators concerned that the fixture could come crashing down on the court at any time. With that issue addressed the two teams completed the game Friday afternoon, with Johnson C. Smith getting the 89-86 win in overtime according to Greg Shaheen.
The result drops Winston Salem State two games behind Livingstone in the CIAA South standings, with Johnson C. Smith moving to 4-5 in CIAA South play.
