Men's Basketball Cruises to 72-59 Senior Day Victory Over BSC

ROME, Ga. — The Berry College men's basketball team cruised to a 72-59 senior day victory over Birmingham-Southern on Sunday afternoon, pushing Berry's record to 16-5 overall and 9-2 in the Southern Athletic Association (SAA).

Berry's 16 wins ties the team's most victories since the 2010-11 season. 

Elijah Hirsh scored his eighth double-double of the season, scoring 22 points and 10 rebounds. He was also 2-of-3 from beyond the arc. Myles Moore scored 16 points with eight rebounds and four assists. 

The Vikings started off hot and were able to sustain their lead going into the half, leading 34-22. After the break, the Panthers fought back. Streaky shooting from the Vikings allowed the Panthers to get back within striking distance. However, a late run eventually put the game in ice, as the Vikings were able to win their fifth straight victory.

BERRY STANDOUTS:

  • Elijah Hirsh: 22 PTS, 9-for-13 FG, 10 REB, 3 BLK
  • Myles Moore: 16 PTS, 8-for-8 FT, 8 REB, 4 AST
  • Caleb Haynes: 9 PTS, 3-for-4 FG, 10 REB
