Returning home: Mercer has been on the road since the middle of December. The Bears return home Saturday when they host The Citadel after a 3-1 start to their first Southern Conference season, including three of those games on the road.
Visiting Bulldogs: The Citadel is 2-2 in conference play and 7-8 overall. The Bulldogs beat UNC Greensboro and Samford after losing four of their previous five games.
Tennessee showdown: Wofford has first place in the conference at 3-0, but two teams right behind the Terriers will face off Saturday as Chattanooga (3-1) travels to East Tennessee State (4-1). The Bucs beat Mercer by one Thursday.
Speaking of Wofford: The Terriers host last-place Samford (0-5), so they should be looking at a 4-0 start.
Also: VMI travels to Furman and UNC Greensboro travels to Western Carolina.
