Elon Phoenix

Elon Phoenix won just three of their 15 conference games and they are 8-20 with their overall record. The Phoenix has been struggling right from the start and things are not getting any better with their weak offensive and defensive unit. However, they managed to defeat Drexel in their last game with a final score of 75-70. Elon has been quite an unpredictable team since they took out some of the strong units this season. The Phoenix will use this opportunity to get past the Dukes in this game.
