A team that lost to a DII powerhouse #1 ranked Metro State in November, the Elon Phoenix reeled off three straight wins against VMI, Georgia State and an overtime win over Columbia. The Phoenix last game was played against the Colorado Buffaloes (Big 12), who upset highly ranked Kansas Jayhawks.
The Phoenix hard fought 80-63 loss was well respected by the Buffaloes. Click here for Elon's last game story. CU's Dinwiddie led his squad with 17 pts. as Elon had no answer for the Buffaloes in the paint.

''We did not play with aggression in the first half and we have to play with aggression,'' Elon coach Matt Matheny said. ''To Colorado's credit, they are very good, they are very talented, but they outrebounded us in the first half by 22 rebounds and we cannot expect to hang around with a Top 25 team.'' After a twelve day layoff for the Hoyas, Elon is looking to catch them sleeping, but I know the old blue and gray will be ready for the Phoenix and on top of their game.
In the Hoyas last game play was a win over a tough Colgate squad. This was good test for the Hoyas in letting them know that any team in college basketball can be dangerous no matter conference they in. They know they can never give up no matter what the circumstances are. This game against Elon will be know different. They are 5-5, 1st in the Southern Conference.
