Elon will look to bounce back after a 71-84 loss to Towson. Elon was led by Marcus Sheffield II with 18 points and 4 rebounds. As a team they converted at 40.7 percent from the field and 31.3 percent from the three-point line. What really hurt Elon was putting Towson at the free throw line as they shot 32 free throws in the game compared to Elon’s 16.

Both teams are 3-2 against the spread in their last 5 games. The over has hit 7 out of their 10 last games so I expect this one to be high scoring as well. That will be the play for me in this one, expect a high scoring game to go over the total.
