MACON, Ga. – Highlights of Mercer’s stunning, 96-81, upset of then 18th-ranked Southern Cal on Nov. 10, will be included in CBS Sports’ coverage of the men’s basketball Final Four.

Segments of the Bears’ win are scheduled to be on “Coast to Coast ’07- ’08: The College Basketball Season in Review” which will be aired from 2-3 p.m. on Saturday, April 5. Mercer Athletics provided video footage and photos as well as Rick Cameron’s – the Voice of the Bears – radio call of the game, for the network to use in the show.

Mercer capped a sensational season-opening week for the Atlantic Sun Conference with the win, spoiling O.J. Mayo’s college debut. The A-Sun’s outstanding dream run began when Gardner-Webb shook things up with a 16-point victory over No. 20 Kentucky on the Wildcats’ home court, then Belmont won at Cincinnati and defeated Alabama in Tuscaloosa
