Mercer Bears vs Georgia Southern Eagles 11/19/2019
The Mercer Bears have defended their home court well with a three-game winning streak. This team has only one game on the road and that that was their opening day match. Seeking for their first win, a win is possible with a good number of surprises in their previous game. Daniel Love has come out and has become a factor for the team with 16 points, five rebounds, four assists and two steals. Another player to watch out for is James Glisson who fired 18 points against Florida Gulf Post. Ethan Stair will be their man in the middle as he had been consistent all throughout and averaged 19 points, 9.5 rebounds, two assists and 1.3 steals.
Djordje Dimitrijevic had been fantastic adding 17 points per game. With the rising options for the team, they would need all players to contribute to hand Georgia State a loss on their home floor.
Players to Watch: E. Stair (19 PPG, 9.5 RPG, 2 APG, 1.3 SPG), D. Dimrijevic (17.3 PPG, 5.8 RPG, 2.8 APG, 1 SPG), R. Cummings (14 PPG, 3 RPG, 1 APG, 1 SPG)
Georgia Southern Eagles
It has been an up-and-down start so far for the Eagles as they are still trying to find their consistency. With highly regarded players on their roster, it will just be in due time before they come out and play their potential. Isaiah Crawley is their leader with 16.5 points and 6.3 rebounds. Last game he had 17 points, eight boards and two blocks. Elijah McCadden and Calvin Wishart had been consistent with the team. But the Eagles want more from Ike Smith who shot just 35% of his 14 shots the last game and Quan Jackson as well.
Jackson had a decent rebounding night at 10 points but he needs to sink his shots as he just did 2-for-9 in their previous match. If he does do that, he will be a double-double threat with more players for Mercer to deal with in their next match.
Players to Watch: I. Crawley (16.5 PPG, 6.3 RPG, 3 APG, 1.3 SPG), E. McCadden (12.8 PPG, 4.8 RPG, 1.5 APG), C. Wishart (12.5 PPG, 2.3 RPG, 3 APG, 1.5 SPG).
