Frederick 80 Mercer 74.

Postgame audio - Coach Howie Levy (with an unexpected cameo from John Thompson III):

Early in the second half of Mercer County Community College's visit to the Verizon Center, a switch flipped.

Trailing 51-26 after falling behind by 20 at the break, the Vikings began to believe in the validity of their man offense sets, and pulled off an incredible comeback that would eventually knot the score with 2:15 to go at 70.

"The effort, the energy, the enthusiasm. I told them afterwards it was the first time that they acted like a team and played like a team," said Mercer coach Howie Levy. "It was nice to watch."

While MCCC was unable to get over that final hurdle, falling by six at the free throw line, it was a rally that appeared to unify the team behind their coach's vision.

"We just had to make a couple more foul shots and a couple more layups," said Levy wistfully after his team's surge came up short.
