After overcoming a slow start, the Panthers outscored Berry in the game's final three quarters, outpacing the Vikings 42-28 in the second half.
"We started off slow tonight, but we finally caught our stride defensively the second half and pulled the win out," said Head Coach Jasen Jonus.
"It was a great team effort all around. Everyone contributed, from our bench energy to everyone on the court. We never gave up."
Overall, the team made 53.6% of its field-goal shots.
The team faces Sewanee tomorrow at 1 p.m., aiming for its second win.
"We've got to continue to learn and get better every game," said Jonus.
