Madison - Catholic Memorial blew a 13-point second-half lead but hit 10 straight free throws in the fourth quarter to seal a 52-49 victory over Sauk Prairie today in a WIAA Division 2 semifinal at the Kohl Center.

Senior T.J. Bray finished with 25 points for the Crusaders, who will face the winner of the Maple Northwestern-Kiel semifinal Saturday at 6:35 p.m.

Sauk Prairie trailed by two with 6 seconds left, but Sam Koenig's three from the corner was short and Memorial gained control of the ball with 0.2 seconds left. Crusaders' senior Derek Schell hit one of two free throws to give his team its final margin of victory.
