Ferris State made sure its first national title was unforgettable.

The Bulldogs won the NCAA Division II national championship against Northern State, 71-69, in a thriller Saturday as Markese Mayfield converted a free throw with 10-seconds left and then held their breath as Darin Peterka’s 3-point attempt from the top of the key clanged off left side of the rim at the buzzer.

The Bulldogs stormed the court at the Pentagon in Sioux Falls, S.D. to mark the university’s first DII crown in any sport.

With the win, the Bulldogs tied a Division II record for wins at 38-1.
