Coursey Lifts Mercer to NCAA Tourney Win

CLICK ON THE VIDEO LINK TO HEAR FROM FORMER BENEDICTINE CADET DANIEL COURSEY ABOUT HIS BIG WIN WITH MERCER OVER THE DUKE BLUE DEVILS IN THE NCAA TOURNAMENT.

 

AP RELEASE:


RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Daniel Coursey scored 17 points and Mercer pulled off the biggest upset in the NCAA tournament so far by knocking off Duke 78-71.
    
Jakob Gollon added 20 points for the 14th-seeded Bears.
    
The Bears were simply too much for a Duke team with stars Jabari Parker and Rodney Hood.
    
Mercer scored 11 straight points during the late 20-5 run that clinched the biggest victory in school history. It's the second one-and-done in three years for the third-seeded Blue Devils.
    
Mercer won the Atlantic Sun conference championship. That's the same conference that produced 2013 tournament darling Florida Gulf Coast.
