Money Making Mercer
Earlier today, the Mercer Bears added their names to VCU, Lehigh University as small schools that came up against the always respected, but usually hated on, Duke Blue Devils. The Bears are currently the most googled topic in the country. Not bad for a team that plays in the Atlantic Sun Conference against schools like Kennesaw State University and last years Cinderella team, Florida Gulf Coast University. The 14 seeded school is home to roughly 8,300 students in Macon, Georgia. PNC Arena, where Mercer defeated the three seed Duke, could hold the entire Mercer student body twice over an have room for well over 2,000 more people.
If you didn’t know them, now you know them.
