In the epic first meeting between Madison Memorial and Sun Prairie, the Spartans climbed back from a double digit deficit in the second half to knock off the Cardinals on a last second 3-point shot. The second affair between the Big Eight’s top two teams, nearly lived up to the excitement of the first.  Through three quarters, Memorial and Sun Prairie went back and forth in a very physical affair. Trailing Memorial by two games in the Big Eight standings, Sun Prairie knocked down key shots and key free throws to keep their conference title hopes alive and get revenge on the Spartans with a 63-54 victory on the road.
