Daniel Coursey dominated the scoring inside with 17 points as the Bears shot 55.6 percent from the floor.

Duke just couldn't find the offense to compete with the Bears, shooting 35.5 percent from the floor, and that was helped by a 40.5 percent 3-point shooting effort. Jabari Parker was held to 4 of 14 shooting and Duke was forced to attempt 37 3-pointers in the loss.

Meanwhile, the Atlantic Sun has its new darling into the third round. The Mercer Bears have saved America, while busting brackets left and right.

Sorry Dook.

The 14-seeded Bears will take on the winner of No. 6 UMass and No. 11 Tennessee on Sunday in Raleigh, where they will now be the favored team in the arena no matter who is on the other bench.

More coming.
