Mercer vs. Florida State 2012 results: Seminoles fall at home, 61-56

US PRESSWIRE

The Seminoles lost at home to the Mercer Bears on Sunday, 61-56, giving Florida State their third loss at home in five games this season.

The disappointing start to the Florida State Seminoles' season continued on Sunday, as they fell 61-56 at home to the Mercer Bears. The loss drops Florida State to 4-3, with all three losses coming at home.

Shooting the ball was a problem for the Seminoles. They shot 35 percent from both the floor and from behind the three point line, and shot only 61.5 percent on free throws. Okaro White led Florida State with 14 points and six rebounds, but was the only player to break into double figures. Terrance Shannon finished with seven points on 1-of-7 shooting, and Michael Snaer had seven points and four rebounds.

The offensive output was much more evenly distributed for the Bears which, despite getting the win, didn't shoot the ball much better than the Seminoles. Travis Smith led Mercer with 13 points, but did so on 2-of-9 shooting. Langston Hall had 10 points, five rebounds, and five assists, and Jakob Gollon and Monty Brown both finished with nine points.

Florida State will have a tough time avoiding a three-game losing streak, as their next game is against No. 7 Florida on Wednesday night.
