Current Records: UNCG 10-6; Mercer 9-7

What to Know

The Mercer Bears haven’t won a contest against the UNCG Spartans since Feb. 17 of 2018, but they’ll be looking to end the drought on Saturday. Mercer and UNCG will face off in a Southern battle at 2 p.m. ET at Hawkins Arena. The Bears will be strutting in after a win while the Spartans will be stumbling in from a defeat.

The VMI Keydets typically have all the answers at home, but on Thursday Mercer proved too difficult a challenge. Mercer secured a 97-91 W over VMI.

Meanwhile, UNCG was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Thursday as they fell 74-69 to the The Citadel Bulldogs.

Mercer came up short against UNCG when the two teams previously met in March of last year, falling 69-61. The loss knocked Mercer out of the playoffs, so expect them to come at UNCG with a vengeful fire.
