Bucknell @ Mercer
Current Records: Bucknell 1-3; Mercer 1-3
What to Know
The Bucknell Bison will take on the Mercer Bears at 3 p.m. ET on Tuesday at Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this game.
The Bison were within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap this past Saturday as they fell 105-100 to the Illinois State Redbirds.
Meanwhile, Mercer received a tough blow this past Saturday as they fell 75-58 to the Saint Louis Billikens. The top scorers for Mercer were guard Jalen Johnson (16 points) and guard Neftali Alvarez (15 points).
The losses bumped both teams down to an identical 1-3. Two stats to keep an eye on: Bucknell is stumbling into the contest with the 352nd fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only nine on average. Mercer has experienced some struggles of their own as they are 24th worst in college basketball in turnovers per game, with 17 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
