Men's basketball: No. 14 seed Mercer shocks Duke
RALEIGH, N.C. — Mercer’s big moment will last a little longer in this NCAA Tournament.
In the first game of tournament play Friday, the Atlantic Sun rose again, with conference champion Mercer shocking third-seeded Duke 78-71 in a Midwest Regional second-round game.
“Our guys continue to believe at such a high level,” coach Bob Hoffman said. “When you work as hard as they have for 365 days, it was just a blessing to see this happen.”
