Mike Mercer Scores 17

Stan Heath and the USF Bulls played Florida Southern in an exhibition game.

Mike Mercer went 7 for 10 from the floor.

Hate to beat this point to death, but this season really is Mercer's last shot. He's had the proverbial two strikes with various legal issues during his time in Tampa. And he's had two serious knee injuries. He was dismissed at Georgia, transferred, dismissed at USF, and reinstated. He has graduated. As far as I know, there are no more schools to attend, no more eligibility to expend.

This will be his last chance to show his coach and anyone else watching that he has the talent, physical strength and the attitude to play basketball at a high level.

Maybe it will all come together for Mercer. I'm pulling for him.
