AP Game Recap

MACON, Ga. -- Adam Sollazzo made a hooked bank shot with 3.7 seconds left to give East Tennessee State a 62-61 win over Mercer Monday night.

The Buccaneers (7-7, 2-1 Atlantic Sun Conference) trailed 61-60 and Mercer had the ball with under 20 seconds left. ETSU's Lukas Poderis then drew a charge with 11.3 seconds to go. Sollazzo took the ball and drove the length of the court, going baseline for the winning shot.

Mercer had one last shot to revenge 2010's 72-66 loss to ETSU in the Atlantic Sun Championship on Langston Hall's half-court heave. The desperation shot bounced twice on the back of the rim and rolled off as the buzzer sounded.

Mike Smith scored 19 points, and Sollazzo finished with 15 for the Buccaneers.
