Elon keeps rolling

Recommended Posts

Now six in a row. Wow, down 15 with 13:00 left to JMU. Elon wins. Incredible comeback. The Dukes definitely missed Matt Lewis at the end, but their young squad led by Amadi looked great until the clutch. That's where they missed Lewis. Elon has such a small team and they shot just 37% from the field, but made 13 of 32 (41%) from beyond the arc. Hunter McIntosh with 24 pts, but it was the late techical foul on Mark Byington that was huge and allowed McIntosh to sink two extra FTs after an and one. Gotta love when the officials have rabbit ears with hardly any fans in the crowd and you can hear everything.

Elon made a great hire with their current coach. And I believe they’re making this run without two of their best players, a transfer & a highly touted freshman. The only “good news” for us out of this, is that the Elon coach will use Elon as a lilly pad to take a better job, as soon as the opportunity presents itself

They had a big win last season over William & Mary in a similar situation. They dominated that game. This was more stunning because they stole it and JMU just fell apart late. Make threes, hang around on the boards and play enough D to win. I still can’t believe they called a tech that late in a tournament game. Not rooting for anybody but you can’t call it there.

Can Elon be the first team to go from the first round and win the CAA Title? In a strange year where teams have all sorts of guys out for various reasons including Elon, it would make sense. Northeastern probably won't have Shaquille Walters tonight.

I wonder if this run is enough to get the Elon coach poached by a bigger program?

I think Elon needs to win tomorrow for Mike Schrage to have any shot of moving on. Indiana grad by the way.
