I guess that we can become jaded as to the reality of sports.

We all hear, know, read about, tweet, etc., etc., etc., about the bad things our athletes — professional and college especially — do to get themselves in trouble.

It is unfortunate that good stories don’t “sell” newspapers or get the ratings; there’s no “money” in writing about how a man helped another guy out instead of robbing him.

We have our daily fill of man’s inhumanity to man, up to our eyeballs with it.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Jakob Gollon scored 20 points and Mercer pulled off the biggest upset in the NCAA tournament so far by knocking off Duke 78-71 on Friday in the second round.

The 14th-seeded and senior-laden Bears scored 11 straight points during the late 20-5 run that clinched the biggest victory in school history. It was the second one-and-done in three years for the third-seeded Blue Devils.

Mercer, which came back from five points down in the last 4:52, won the Atlantic Sun conference championship. That’s the same conference that produced 2013 tournament darling Florida Gulf Coast.

Daniel Coursey added 17 points to help the Bears (27-8) overcome a season-high 15 3-pointers from Duke.

Quinn Cook scored 23 points for Duke (26-9) and Rasheed Sulaimon added 20.
