How To Watch

What to Know

The Elon Phoenix will head out on the road to face off against the UNCG Spartans at 4:30 p.m. ET on Sunday at Greensboro Coliseum. Elon is hoping to put an end to a three-game streak of away losses.

It’s hard to win when your three-point shooting is a whole 22.9% worse than the opposition, a fact Elon found out the hard way on Sunday. They fell 82-72 to the Highlanders.

Meanwhile, UNCG entered their tilt with Eastern Kentucky with five consecutive wins but they’ll enter their next game with six. The Spartans came out on top in a nail-biter against the Colonels on Thursday and snuck past 87-85. Having run the score up that high, both teams probably have some extra defensive drills coming up.

The Phoenix’s win bumped their season record to 5-4 while the Highlanders’ loss dropped theirs to 6-4.

Sunday’s game is shaping up to be a masterclass in shooting: Elon has themselves a killer kicker this season, having nailed 47.6% of their shots per game. However, it’s not like UNCG struggles in that department as they’ve drained 47.4% of theirs this season. Given these competing strengths, it’ll be interesting to see how their clash plays out.
