Division II College Basketball Tie: Game Stops Due to Broken Light

Division II College Basketball Tie: College basketball is designed to end with a winner, but somehow a game between division II foes ended in an actual tie.

It is not unusual for a college basketball game to end in a tie–that is, in regulation. Should that happen the two teams are supposed to play a five minute overtime period. If that one ends in a tie than another is played. If that one also ends in a tie another one is played–and another and another until eventually one team has more points than the other.

So how in the world did this game end in a tie?

With time running out and  the game tied at 76-76 Johnson C. Smith player Joshua Linson went for the court long heave in a last ditch effort to get the win and avoid an overtime period. The only problem was that in his attempt to make sure that the ball made it the distance of the court he threw it really, really hard–and nailed a light fixture overhead.

He damaged the fixture enough that officials were afraid it could fall at any moment so they called the game effectively ending it in a tie.

You would think that with so many schools playing in so many games over the years that there would be a few ties on the books–but there aren’t. In fact there is only one other tie on record; a game between  Kentucky and Kentucky Wesleyan back in 1918. Like this tie, the end was not by design, but a referee error.
