In what may be described as one of the biggest upsets in recent NCAA Tournament history, the No. 14 seeded Mercer men's basketball team made all the plays down the stretch to capture a 78-71 win over No. 3 seeded Duke in the second round of the Midwest Regional on Friday afternoon at PNC Arena.

Mercer (27-8) ended the game on an 18-8 run to capture its first NCAA Tournament win in the 108-year history of the Mercer men's basketball program.

The Bears became just the eighteenth No. 14 seed to ever knock off a No. 3 seed in the history of the NCAA Tournament and will now play the winner of No. 11 Tennessee and No. 6 UMass on Sunday, March 23.

Senior Jakob Gollon paced five Bears in double figures with 20 points on 5-of-9 shooting from the field and a perfect 9-for-9 showing from the free throw line.

Mercer shot 56 percent (25-of-45) from the field in the contest and handed out 16 assists in the win compared to just eight turnovers.
