What to Know
After a three-game homestand, the Elon Phoenix will be on the road. Elon and the Monmouth Hawks will face off in a Colonial battle at 2 p.m. ET Saturday at OceanFirst Bank Center. The point spread is more or less neutral, so fans should expect a close matchup.
The Phoenix have to be aching after a bruising 88-66 loss to the College of Charleston Cougars on Thursday. Elon was surely aware of their 13.5-point disadvantage in the point spread, but the foreknowledge did nothing to prevent the result.
Meanwhile, Monmouth ended up a good deal behind the Northeastern Huskies when they played on Thursday, losing 77-62.
Elon is now 7-21 while Monmouth sits at 6-22. Elon is 3-17 after losses this year, the Hawks 3-18.
