Jakob Gollon scored 20 points and Daniel Coursey added 17, as Mercer pulled off a stunning 78-71 upset of Duke in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

The Bears closed the contest on a 20-8 run to become the second straight Atlantic Sun team to provide an NCAA surprise. Last year, it was Florida Gulf Coast that knocked off second-seeded Georgetown on the way to the Sweet 16.

Duke, which finished the season ranked eighth in the country, lost its NCAA Tournament opener for the second time in three years.
