Madison Edgewood's Sam Noyce drilled a fadeaway buzzer-beater to beat the Milton boys basketball team on Thursday night.

The Red Hawks had rallied in the second half to take a late lead, but Noyce's deep two-point jumper gave the Crusaders a 66-65 Badger South Conference home victory.

Milton trailed by three at halftime and five heading into the fourth quarter.

A 7-2 run to open the final quarter put it right back in the game. Tyler Westrick capped off the Red Hawks' comeback with an old-fashioned three-point play that gave them the 65-64 lead with just five seconds left, but Noyce had the final answer.

Westrick finished with 16 points for Milton, which was led by Noah Johnson's 21.

The Red Hawks fell to 2-5 in the Badger South, while Edgewood is 5-3.
