MACON, Ga. -- Daniel Coursey scored 20 points, on 9-of-11 shooting, as Mercer dominated NAIA Division II Reinhardt 95-53 on Wednesday night.
Mercer (1-1) narrowly lost to Texas 76-73 in its opening game. Mercer led 55-22 at halftime and used a 10-0 run at the start of the second half to extend its lead. The Bears broke 90 points for the first time since Jan. 30, 2010.
Reinhardt shot just 26.5 percent in the game and no player finished in double figures. Quinton Woods, Reinhardt's leading scorer (averaging 16.2 a game), went 2-for-14, including 0-for-7 from 3-point range.
The win marked Bob Hoffman's 500th career win and his 100th with Mercer.
Maryland point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.
Louisville's Chinanu Onuaku, who recently underwent a medical procedure to correct a heart rhythm issue detected during the combine, will keep his name in the NBA draft pool.
Andrew White III will return to the Nebraska men's basketball team next season after removing his name from the NBA draft.
