Elon Projected Starters

PG Dainan Swoope (Jr.): 14.1 ppg. 3.5 apg, 1.6 A/TO Ratio
SG Dmitri Thompson (Sr.): 11.7 ppg, 5.5 rpg, .435 3-Pt %
G Steven Santa Ana (Jr.): 9.9 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 2.1 apg
F Tyler Seibring (Jr.): 13.5 ppg, 6.1 rpg, .438 3-pt %
F Brian Dawkins (R-Sr.): 11.7 ppg, 5.9 rpg, .479 FG %


Elon came off a fairly strong non-conference slate, going 6-4 against D-I opponents, and hit the ground running in CAA play, with their only loss coming against Northeastern on the road. The Phoenix gave the Seahawks problems during the Keatts era, and now that they are on the opposite end of the pecking order in the CAA, expect this to be a rough game on the road.

Elon are a veteran squad that plays very well together, particularly when it comes to ball movement. Elon averages 15.7 assists per contest, 2nd in the league only to 4-0 William & Mary (18.7). This at least partly explains why Elon is the 3rd best three-point shooting team in the league (.360). And despite playing at a fast pace (59.5 shots per game, 3rd in the league), the Phoenix are 4th in the league in scoring defense (72.8 ppg allowed).

The one area where Elon is exploitable is in the turnover department; this is typically where the Seahawks thrived against Elon since they entered the league. However, while Elon is 9th in turnover margin (-1.94), UNCW is worse (-2.56). So unless Coach McGrath's squad shows significant improvement in that department, it can't be expected that this will be the matchup where Elon gets exposed.

RE: Elon
Matt Matheny is a Bob McKilop disciple... And we all know what Davidson did to us in the first game. I would be utterly impressed if we keep it within double digits. Regardless, I will be watching. WINGS UP!

I thought it may have just been early line, but I checked again and it's still 9-10 today.

Looking forward to their new gym. Playing D1 ball in a glorified Rec league gym is a travesty. I went a few years ago when they ruined our first place finish.

That sucked. Would have been NIT, NCAA, NCAA rather than CIT, NCAA, NCAA.
