Wednesday's recap:

Mercer 69 - Samford 78
The Samford Bulldogs (7-7, 1-0 SoCon) drained a season-high 13 threes while finishing 57 percent from beyond the arc (13-23) against the Mercer Bears. Jermaine Marshall knocked down a career-best five treys on seven attempts while Nathan Johnson sank four of seven shots from downtown in a 14-point performance.  Marshall and Logan Dye combined for 48 points while Jaron Rillie distributed 10 assists to help guide the Samford Men's Basketball team to a 78-69 win over Mercer to open Southern Conference play on Wednesday. The Bulldogs used a 54 percent (14-26) shooting effort in the second half to finish the night with a clip of 50 percent (26-52) while also knocking down 13 of 17 free throws in the contest.

Samford did not look like a team that had lost seven straight games.
