The Under the Radar Game of the Day heads to Lynchburg, Virginia this evening, site of the re-located US Virgin Islands Paradise Jam, as a pair of upset winners in yesterday’s quarterfinals meet in the first of the two semifinals. Head coach Bob Hoffman’s Mercer Bears knocked off Liberty (the host team) in the first quarterfinal by a score of 63-48. The Bears were led by Jordan Strawberry, who only had 9 points but pulled down 13 boards and dished out 7 assists.
Mercer’s opponents is Zach Spiker’s Drexel Dragons. Drexel upset Houston in the quarterfinal round 84-80. Tramaine Isabell came off the bench to have a huge day, scoring 21 points and pulling down 16 rebounds. Three other players also scored in double-digits for the Dragons. If they can have such a balanced attack today, this team has a great chance to advance to Sunday’s championship game, where they would take on the winner of the second semifinal between Colorado and Drake.
