Moore Sinks Buzzer Beater, Pushes Vikings Past Ferrum 77-74

ROME, Ga. — Myles Moore hit a buzzer beater from distance on Saturday afternoon to give the Berry College men's basketball team a 77-74 victory over Ferrum College. The win pushes Berry's record to 6-1 on the year, one of their best starts to a season since joining NCAA Division III.

After surviving a second-half onslaught by the Panthers that saw the Vikings outscored 45-39, Berry held on to a 74-74 tie in the final seconds. BC was set to run a play on the final possession of the game, but Moore lost the ball to Ferrum's Marcus Plair. Moore immediately regained possession on a steal, firing from beyond three point range to clinch the win. 

Moore was one of four Vikings to score double-figures, joining Elijah Hirsh, Caleb Haynes and Dawson Wehunt. Hirsh led Berry with 18 points on 7-for-9 shooting. As a team, the Vikings show 57.1% from the field, 42.1% from three-point range and were 86.7% from the free throw line. 

BERRY STANDOUTS:

  • Elijah Hirsh: 18 PTS, 7-for-9 FG, 4-for-4 FT, 2 AST
