MADISON, Wis. -

Shareef Smith hit a three-point shot as time expired to give Madison Memorial a 62-60 win over Middleton in Big Eight boys basketball Thursday night.

Middleton fans stormed the court, thinking the game was over. But two seconds still remained on the clock and the court was cleared for the deciding play.
