It was the first victory for the Vikings under interim head coach Derek Taylor, who took over the position when Jeff Haarlow resigned on Jan. 30.
Berry had gone 0-4 since that date prior to Sunday’s win.
Berry, which improved to 5-18 and 2-10 SAA, notched its first road win since Feb. 17, 2011, when the Vikings won at Truett McConnell, 77-73.
Abrams finished 5-of-13 from the field in Sunday’s game. He also made 5-of-7 free throws, including converting two foul shots to give the Vikings the 63-60 lead with 15 seconds remaining. Hendrix missed a 3-pointer on its final possession.
Mac Whalen added 12 points and Jake Wright contributed 11 for the Vikings.
“This was a great team effort tonight,” said Coach Taylor. “The guys followed our game plan and did everything I asked them to do. Mac (Whalen) and Jon were big down the stretch. ... I couldn’t be prouder of (the team).”
The Vikings host Millsaps on Friday at 8 p.m.
