Led by Keke Calloway’s 20 points, the Lady Bears beat Wofford in the quarterfinals of the Southern Conference Women’s Basketball Championships, 67-42.

Both teams had a slow start, but Mercer consistently held the lead throughout the game, outscoring their opponent in each quarter. The Bears were especially hot in the third quarter where they put up 25 points.

“I am pleased with our entire game today. We know Wofford can get hot from three. What a great player Chloe [Wanink] is,” Coach Susie Gardner said in a Mercer press release. “They did hit some 3s on us to start the first quarter but I thought Sydni [Means] did a great job of running our team. Obviously KeKe [Calloway] shot the ball extremely well today. Amanda Thompson did a great job rebounding. One of our focal points was not to be out-rebounded so I am really, really pleased with our effort today.”

Mercer’s defense managed to shut down any aggressive offensive play that Wofford attempt. The highest amount Wofford was able to score any quarter was 12 in the third.

The Bears were more efficient than the Terriers from deep, landing 6 of 11 three-point attempts while Wofford only managed to score 5 out of their 17 attempts.

Calloway landed five three-pointers during the game which put her at 60 for her career.

Mercer has an all time record of 9-1 against Wofford and is 2-0 against Wofford in the postseason.

With this win Mercer is 24-5 and will move on to play the number 6 seed Samford tomorrow (Mar. 3).
