MACON, Ga. (AP) Daniel Love scored 14 points, Kamar Robertson added 13 with six assists and Mercer beat The Citadel 76-71 on Saturday to win its sixth straight.

The Citadel's Kaiden Rice tied it at 54 with a 3-pointer with 6:15 left to play, but Diego Rivera's go-ahead 3 sparked an 11-1 run and the Bears pulled ahead for good.

Rivera scored 13 points off the bench for the Bears (12-11, 6-4 Southern Conference), who won the rebound battle 31-24. Jeffrey Gary added 12 points and Ethan Stair had 10 with five rebounds.

Rice hit four of eight 3-pointers and scored 17 points for the Bulldogs (6-15, 0-10), who have lost 10 straight. Stephen Clark scored 14 points and Kaelon Harris and Fletcher Abee added 12 apiece.
