Mercer

NCAA Basketball Tournament - Second Round - Raleigh

Highlights: 14-Seed Mercer Stuns No. 3 Duke 78-71

Senior-laden Mercer went into Duke’s backyard and pulled off the biggest upset of the NCAA tournament so far Friday, beating the Blue Devils 78-71 and likely ending Jabari Parker’s short college career.

The 14th-seeded Bears, from the same league that produced last year’s tournament darlings “Dunk City” of Florida Gulf Coast, came back from five points down in the last 4:52 as Duke’s offense collapsed.
