Mercer, a junior guard from Snellville, Ga., was already serving a 15-game suspension for violating UGA Athletic Association academic policy. He had missed the last 10 games of his sophomore season after he suffered injuries to his right knee in the BulldogsĀ¹ win at South Carolina on Feb. 10.

At the time of his knee injury last season, Mercer was the BulldogsĀ¹ second-leading scorer at 13.7 points per game. He started all 23 games in which he played as a sophomore.
