Ole Miss @ Elon
Current record: Ole Miss 2-2; Elon 2-3
What to know
Elon Phoenix will face off against Ole Miss Rebels at 9 p.m. ET on Friday at TD Arena. Given that both teams lost in their most recent match, both have a little more incentive to go into this one.
On Thursday, Elon lost to the West Virginia Mountaineers by a decisive 87-68. Five players on Phoenix scored double digits: defender Torrence Watson (15), guard McIntosh Hunter (13), guard Darius Burford (12), guard Hunter Woods (11), and protect Zac Ervin (11).
Meanwhile, Ole Miss are in striking distance but were unable to close the gap on Thursday as they fell 78-72 to the Marquette Golden Eagles. Despite the defeat, the Rebels put on a solid performance off center Nysier Brooks, who had 13 points along with seven rebounds. Brooks didn’t help his team much against the Charleston Southern Buccaneers last Friday, so this is a good turning point for him.
Elon is the obvious underdog, so they hope that the scale of the fight will determine this. Those burned by picking them up against Thursday’s margin may want to note that the team has yet to beat back-to-back games by margin this season.
The loss left Elon 2-3 and Ole Miss 2-2. Two stats to keep in mind while watching: The Phoenix is slamming the competition with the 25th-best score in college basketball, amassing only 10.5. To make matters worse, Elon, the Rebel ranked 28th in college basketball when it comes to passes per game, averaging just 10. So the cards are definitely stacked in favor of Ole Miss.
