The Bears continued Southern Conference play with games against Western Carolina University on Thursday, Feb. 10 and the University of North Carolina Greensboro on Saturday, Feb. 12.

Their game against Western Carolina was a low-scoring affair, ending in a 46-40 victory. The Bears were down 5-6 at the end of the first quarter, but they came back by halftime with a score of 23-14 over WCU. They kept a strong lead over the Catamounts for the remainder of the game and did not allow them a chance for a comeback.

Daugherty had 11 points in the game with eight rebounds and two assists. Neal-Tysor and Houpt each had ten points for the night with a combined three rebounds.

Mercer went on to play the University of North Carolina Greensboro on Saturday, Feb. 12 and came away with a huge 75-43 win over the Spartans.

The Bears were down by one point at the end of the first, but they made up for it with a 36-25 lead over UNCG at the half. For the remainder of the game, the Bears were up and ended the night with a huge win and confidence boost going into their games against Wofford and Furman during the upcoming week.

The two wins brought the team’s overall record to 17-6, and their conference record to 10-1.

They play Wofford on Thursday, Feb. 17 and Furman on Saturday, Feb. 19. Furman is their only conference loss, so the game on Saturday is the Bears’ shot at redemption.
