MACON, Ga. (AP) - Travis Smith scored a career-high 25 points and Mercer pulled away from Stetson 70-64 Monday in the Atlantic Sun Conference opener for both teams.

Tied at 40 with 13:53 left, the Bears opened up a 5-point lead. After Stetson got to 53-52 on Adam Pegg's jumper with 5:26 left, Mercer used an 8-0 run, with 3-pointers by Smith and Langston Hall, to pull away. Smith made 4 of 4 free throws in the final 33 seconds to seal it.

Jakob Gollon added 11 points and Hall 10 for the Bears.

Joel Naburgs led the Hatters with 18 points.
