Repeat or revenge? Dunk City, Mercer to meet for Atlantic Sun title, automatic NCAA berth

Florida Gulf Coast and Mercer meet Sunday on the Eagles' home floor in Fort Myers, Fla., to decide the Atlantic Sun's postseason champion and who gets the league's automatic bid into the NCAA tournament.

The teams shared the conference's regular-season title.

For Mercer (25-8), it's a shot at a little revenge.

FGCU (22-11) won the A-Sun title game on Mercer's home floor last season, then went to the NCAAs and pulled off a couple upsets as a No. 15 seed on the way to an improbable Sweet Sixteen appearance and earning the moniker "Dunk City."

The teams split two meetings this season, both winning at home. Combined score of those games: FGCU 130, Mercer 129.
