Mike Mercer still with USF after Incident

It appears that Mike Mercer's discipline, after being arrested for public consumption of alcohol, will be handled internally, and that Mercer will remain with the USF basketball team.

Mercer has been playing this summer with the Tampa Bay Pro Am, a summer league operated by Haywood Workman, formerly of the Indiana Pacers.

According to one source, USF has had to self-report violations for having un-approved players participating in the League. Mercer did have approval, but others on his team did not. Terrell Woody, an individual later hired by USF to assist with the basketball team, was a coach of one of the teams participating in the Pro Am.

In somewhat related news, USF is facing scrutiny with regard to Woody's hiring and the recruitment of elite big man, Gus Gilchrist.

Package Deal?
