Jestin Lewis, following a career-high 28 points in a loss at Auburn, finished with 21 points for Mercer. Stephon Jelks added a career-high 20 points and 15 rebounds, and Rivers finished with 15.

Moses Kingsley led the Razorbacks (5-5) with 18 points and 14 rebounds, while Anthlon Bell had 16 and Dusty Hannahs 10 in the loss.
