RALEIGH, N.C. -- Daniel Coursey scored 17 points and Mercer pulled off the biggest upset in the NCAA Tournament so far by knocking off Duke, 78-71 in Friday action.

Jakob Gollon added 20 points for the 14th-seeded Bears (27-8).

The Atlantic Sun champions -- the same league that produced 2013 tournament darling Florida Gulf Coast -- shot 56 percent.

 

Baylor 74, Nebraska 60

SAN ANTONIO -- Cory Jefferson scored 16 points and No. 6 seed Baylor kept 11th-seeded Nebraska winless in its NCAA tournament history with a 74-60 second-round victory Friday.

The Bears (25-11) kept up a two-month tear and will play either No. 3 seed Creighton or No. 14 seed Louisiana-Lafayette on Sunday. Baylor has won 11 of 13 after a dismal start in the Big 12, recapturing the kind of momentum that vaulted the Bears to the Elite Eight in 2010 and 2012.

Terran Petteway scored 18 points for Nebraska (19-13), which fell to 0-7 in tournament history.
