Mercer history made: Lady Bears win SoCon championship

The Ruling: Win and you're in

The formula is pretty simple now for the Bears: Win, and you get to keep playing. The regular season doesn’t mean anything now. Mercer’s 18-13 record. The trials and tribulations. The ups. The downs. The injuries. The game winners. None of it matters. Win, and you’re in. The Bears will need ...

The Ruling: Cummings is stealing the show

I remember getting off the telephone thinking, “Ouch.” I had just spoken with head coach Bob Hoffman and sources inside the program who relayed the news that leading-scorer Ria’n Holland’s x-rays didn’t look good. Holland would ultimately be ruled out for 2-3 weeks with a right wrist injury ...
