Beloit Memorial used a late three-pointer and a controversial ending to edge visiting Sun Prairie in Big Eight Conference boys basketball action Thursday night.


Dennis Crosby hit a three-pointer—one of 10 the Purple Knights had in the game—with five seconds left to send Beloit past Sun Prairie, 66-65.


The Cardinals rushed the ball downcourt after Crosby’s shot. They put up a shot about five feet past the three-point line that missed. In the ensuing scramble, a foul was whistled on Beloit. After a conference, the referees ruled that the call had come after the buzzer and the game was finished.
