Florida A&M (7-15, 3-6) pulled off double overtime conference thriller, defeating the Delaware State Hornets (4-20, 2-7)  96-95 with leading scorer Malcolm Bernard hitting a game-winning buzzer beater to seal the victory Monday night.

After a slow first half, the Rattlers hit the ground running with a 12-4 run to begin the second half.

Senior forward, Bernard led all scorers with 27 points, grabbing 14 rebounds and six assists. Freshman guard Justin Ravenal was second with 20 points, 18 points coming from three pointers.

Center for Delaware State, Scott Sill hit a pivotal game-tying layup at the end of the regulation to send the game into overtime. Kavon Waller and Devin Morgan both led the Hornets with 18 points.

Senior guard Jerran Foster entered the game late in second overtime after Ravenal fouled out and hit two clutch three pointers to keep the Rattlers alive after the Hornets broke out to a six-point lead.

With less than 10 seconds left on the clock, Bernard drove the ball down the court, dodged a defender and put up a floating shot, banking it off of the backboard while taking contact from two defenders just as the buzzer sounded.

The Hornets are currently last in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference and the Rattlers are twelfth.
