TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -

Langston Hall and Travis Smith each sank a pair of free throws in the final 23 seconds Sunday to lift Mercer to a 61-56 upset over Florida State's defending Atlantic Coast Conference champions.

Smith led Mercer, an Atlantic Sun Conference member, with 13 points and Hall finished with 10. It was the Bears' first win over Florida State since 1954, but their second win in as many seasons over an ACC team. They defeated Wake Forest last year.

Mercer (4-4) shot 37.5 percent (18 of 48) to Florida State's 35.4 percent (17 of 48) in the game.

Okaro White was the lone Florida State player in double figures, finishing with 14 points. Michael Snaer was held to just seven points and managed only six shots in the game for the Seminoles (4-3).
