WINCHESTER, Va. – Visiting Ferrum College salvaged a split of its ODAC men's basketball season series versus Shenandoah by topping the Hornets 89-85 in overtime Saturday afternoon at the James R. Wilkins, Jr. Athletics & Events Center. 

After coughing up a 13-point, 45-32, halftime lead, as Shenandoah (5-16, 1-11 ODAC) forced overtime, Ferrum (5-16, 4-8) rallied in the extra session.

Trailing by five with 1:40 to play in OT, the Panthers scored the final nine points of the game to steal the victory from SU.


Holding an 85-80 lead with 1:40 to play following a Jaylen Williams layup, SU got a stop on the Panthers ensuing possession, but turned the ball over in the backcourt.

Ferrum got a 3-pointer from Rashad Reed to cut the deficit to two. Shenandoah missed on a jumper on its trip down the floor and FC answered with a Marcus Huff 3-pointer from the corner at the 39-second mark to go on top to stay.

Shenandoah had one turnover and two missed shots in the waning moments as Ferrum sealed the victory.

The Panthers comeback rendered moot a regulation-closing 11-4 run by the Hornets. Trailing by seven, 70-63, with 4:41 remaining, SU scored 11 of the final 15 points of regulation to force OT.

Christopher Chaney knotted it 74-74 by hitting a pair from the line with 25 seconds left. Shenandoah did have the final possession of regulation, but its shot at the buzzer went off the front rim.


Shenandoah takes to the road on Wednesday for a 7 p.m. ODAC contest at Bridgewater.


  • The win was the 30th lifetime for Ferrum in the longtime series versus Shenandoah

  • It was alumni day for the SU men's basketball program and the Hornets had alumni from the Classes of 1958, 1980, 1997, 1999, 2002, 2005 and 2014 return for the game
