Ferrum Tops Men's Hoops

FERRUM, Va. - Host Ferrum College completed a season sweep over the SU men's basketball team with a 77-63 USA South Conference win Tuesday evening.

The Panthers (12-8, 5-3 USA South) shot 54 percent from the field in finishing off their fourth straight victory over Shenandoah (4-17, 2-6).

The two teams traded the lead three times and were tied on three more occasions in the opening 10 minutes before Marcus Mayo gave the hosts the lead for good with his 3-pointer at the 9:53 mark.

SU was able to trade buckets with Ferrum for the next six minutes before the Panthers finished off the first half on a 15-5 run.

This spurt, part of a larger run that lasted 3:35 into the second half, gave FC a 47-34 lead with 16:25 to play.

Ferrum kept its lead in double digits for the remainder of the contest, eventually extending the advantage to 18 points in the final minute before coasting home to the 14-point win.

Sophomore Avery Green paced the Hornets with 15 points, all but one of which was scored in the second half, while Ross Heyl added 12.

Daryl Hart had 20, Lamont King 19 and Mayo 14 for the victors.

Shenandoah returns to the court on Saturday at Methodist in a 4:00 USA South Conference contest.
