The cross-town rivalry between Berry College and Shorter University was revived again last night, and once again it was Shorter that emerged as the victors in men’s and women’s basketball at Berry’s Cage Center.  The number 22 Lady Hawks beat the Lady Vikings 67-55.  The number one Hawks defeated the Vikings 76-60, marking the Hawks’ 25th victory over the season.  It was also Shorter men’s head coach Chad Warner’s 99th career win.  Shorter’s teams will travel to Mt. Vernon, Georgia to take on Brewton-Parker tomorrow.  The women will play at noon, followed by the men at 2 pm.  The games will be broadcast on 95.7 FM The Ridge and www.theridge957.com.  Berry’s teams will also be on the road tomorrow; they’ll travel to Young Harris College.  Tip off is set for 2 pm for the women and 4 pm for the men.  Coverage of those games will be provided on WLAQ AM 1410 and www.wlaq1410.com.
