    MACON, Ga. -- Jake Gollon made a layup with 11 seconds left to play, breaking a tie and sealing a 73-68 victory for Mercer over Navy on Friday night.

    After a missed 3-pointer from Jordan Sugars with 48 seconds left, Gollon nailed the game-winning layup to seal Mercer's first win since Nov. 26 and break a four-game losing streak.

    Jeff Smith led Mercer with 22 points and Brian Mills added 17 points and seven rebounds.
