Led by second-year coach Matt Matheny, the Elon University Phoenix punish opponents with its blend of precision play-calling and stingy defense. Veteran squadmates Chris Long and Drew Spradlin are joined on the court by freshman guard and three-point sharpshooter Jack Isenbarger, whose double-digit scoring average leads all bench players. The trio and their teammates welcome rivals to the newly renovated confines of their home at Alumni Gym. Hoop hounds can choose the excitement of nonconference play when the Phoenix clash with the ACC's North Carolina State Wolfpack for a special game at the Greensboro Coliseum, or revel in the intricacies of intraconference rivalries with dates against fellow Southern Conference members Georgia Southern Eagles, College of Charleston Cougars, and UNC–Greensboro Fightin' Dr. Pepper Cans.
