Honors for Berry’s Chase Ellis: Thanks to a pair of impressive outings in two different states, Berry’s Chase Ellis has earned the Vikings’ first Southern Athletic Association weekly honor of 2022 as the sophomore has been named the SAA’s Men’s Basketball Player of the Week. At the Naples Shootout in Naples, Fla., on Dec. 20, Ellis poured in 19 points in the Vikings’ 74-54 win over Albright, connecting on four of six shots from the floor and converting 11 of 12 free throws.  A week later on Dec. 29 at the Music City Classic in Nashville, Tenn., the Douglasville, Ga., native remained in the offensive groove when he connected for 20 points in Berry’s 78-72 upset win over No. 6-ranked Wheaton. In that game, Ellis hit 50 percent of his shots, was 10 of 15 from the foul line and pulled down five rebounds. For the season, Ellis is averaging 11.5 points and 4.3 rebounds a game.
