      Crisp Academy's Mitchell signs on with Mercer


      Crisp Academy basketball star Madi Mitchell signed with Mercer University on Wednesday.

      She'll play power forward and center under head coach Susie Gardner in Macon. She was drawn to the Bears' style of play.

      "They like to run the floor and give it down low," Mitchell said. "And they feed the post."

      Entering her senior season, Mitchell plans to refine her post skills and develop her perimeter jump shot.

      Under Gardner, Mercer's women's basketball team won 20 games in 2013.
