Hundreds of Mercer University students and fans gathered Monday afternoon to give the retuning basketball team a rousing welcome home.

The team and coaching staff pulled up outside the school’s University Center at 1:12 p.m. Monday.

Mercer stunned March Madness pundits with an upset of Duke University in Raleigh, N.C., on Friday before losing to the University of Tennessee on Sunday.
