  • Not Basketball Too? Gardner-Webb & Mercer Top Majors

    Gardner-Webb beat Kentucky, Mercer upset O.J. and USC:


    Mercer 96, (18) USC 81

    Preview - Box Score - Recap

    LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Give it up for the Atlantic Sun.

    Mercer capped a sensational week for the low-major conference, stunning No. 18 Southern California 96-81 Saturday and spoiling O.J. Mayo's college debut.

    The Atlantic Sun's dream week began Thursday, when Gardner-Webb shook things up with a 16-point victory over No. 20 Kentucky on the Wildcats' home court, then Belmont won at Cincinnati on Friday.

    "The Kentucky result was on our mind," USC's Taj Gibson said. "We knew this was a dangerous team."

    James Florence scored 30 points and the small-school Bears from Macon, Ga., shot nearly 60 percent from the floor in their season-opener.

    "There's no way to describe it," Florence said.

    Watch out Alabama, Harvard and Boston College. Mercer comes your way next.

    "They'll come a lot harder at us," said Calvin Henry, who added 14 points.
