Brayboy Madness took on a whole new meaning Wednesday night as Johnson C. Smith and Winston-Salem State played a game that will be talked about for years to come. The game ended in a tie as a desperation heave hit a light fixture and damaged it.

After a brief discussion, CIAA officials ruled the game a draw. WSSU is now 6-2-1 in the CIAA Division. It hosts 8-1 Livingstone on Saturday.
