Posted: Updated:

KENNESAW, Ga. (AP) - Langston Hall pumped in 20 points, including four-straight free throws in the final seconds, as Mercer maintained its one-game lead atop the Atlantic Sun Conference by scoring a 75-68 win at Kennesaw State Friday night.

The Bears and second-place Florida Gulf Coast both have clinched spots in the conference championships.

Myles Hamilton gave the Owls the lead with a pair of free throws with 3:25 left in the game to make it 66-64, but Darious Moten's three-point play put Mercer back in front for good and the Bears padded the lead from the free-throw line in the final minute.

Bud Thomas scored 16 points and Monty Brown and Moten added 12 and 10 points, respectively, for Mercer (19-6, 10-2).

Yonel Brown scored 12 points off the bench to lead Kennesaw State (4-21, 1-11). Orlando Coleman and Delbert Love added 10 points each.
