Buzzer-beater sends GVSU to NCAA tournament

NCAA Hoops

CALEDONIA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) – Jeramiah Ferguson’s jumper from the corner as time expired gave Grand Valley State a 55-53 victory over Wisconsin-Parkside on Saturday at Davenport University.

The victory gives the Lakers a berth to the Division II NCAA Tournament.  That’s because Davenport, which is still not eligible for the Division II postseason, won the other semifinal over Northern Michigan earlier in the day. So the GLIAC automatic berth was awarded to the winner of the second semifinal game.

Davenport and Grand Valley State are scheduled to play Sunday afternoon for the conference championship.
