Mercer Bears take down two in SEC

Kudos to Mercer.  The Bears won back-to-back games at Alabama (72-69) and Auburn (78-74) to help open their season, led by James Florence’s 22.3 point-per-game.  It’s not like the Tide or Tigers are NCAA heavyweights, but victories like this are huge for a team that finished 11-19 last year.  The Bears aren’t even favored to win the Atlantic Sun Conference (Belmont is).  Perhaps MU should move to the SEC West?  The road ahead doesn’t get any easier, with games against Georgia Tech, Dayton, Oklahoma State, and UCLA all on tap before New Year’s.
