    MACON, Ga. -- Langston Hall scored 18 points and recorded a career-high 11 assists as Mercer took sole possession of first place in the Atlantic Sun Conference, beating Florida Gulf Coast 68-55 Thursday night.

    FGCU scored the last four points of the first half and the first four points of the second to pull within two before Mercer rattled off 21 of the game's next 26, taking a 55-36 lead with 10:39 remaining. Hall hit three shots from beyond the arc in that span and the Eagles never threatened again.

    Bernard Thompson scored 21 for FGCU (12-9, 6-2). Chase Fieler added 13 points, 10 rebounds, two steals and two blocked shots. He moved into fourth place on the Eagles' all-time scoring list and became the first player in school history with 1,000 points and 600 rebounds.

    Daniel Coursey finished with 14 points, 12 rebounds, three steals and four blocks for Mercer (16-5, 7-1).
