Berry missed the first month of the season due to a sickness. After returning and playing in one game, a fractured wrist cost him another extended period of games.
Now finally healthy, Berry, a Carnegie Mellon recruit, has been playing at a high level for the Lions. He scored 11 points in Saturday’s win over Burlington Central in the MLK Classic hosted by Central. In a rare back-to-back doubleheader, the Lions received 22 points from Berry in a 43-41 loss to Waubonsie Valley in the nightcap.
Berry, a second-year varsity player, said he's happy to be contributing to a winning team.
“I have probably played only five or six games," Berry said. "It was tough, but it could’ve have been a lot worse. A lot of kids with wrist injuries have sat out longer, but I was thankful to get back out there with the guys. I needed a couple of games to get my rhythm back, but I feel my confidence is there.”
