Players to Watch
Jordan Collins -- Wolfpack center had 17 points in the opener on six of seven shooting from the field. If Collins can be a force in the paint it will only open the outside for Wolfpack shooters.
Jackson Atoyebi -- Physical forward paced Elon in their opening win with 20 points. He's a presence in the paint and although he's undersized Atoyebi is very productive.
The Elon Phoenix finished 12-18 under first-year head coach Ernie Nestor last season. The Phoenix will return nine lettermen, including eight who have appeared in the starting lineup at least once in their career.
Forward Jackson Atoyebi was a first-team All-Conference performer last season after averaging 16.1 points and 17.8 rebounds.
Elon freshman Simon Harris is the son of Wolfpack assistant coach Larry Harris.
Sophomore Chris Chalko came off the bench to provide a spark for the Phoenix. Chalko connected on seven of nine field goals from the field for 17 points in just 17 minutes of action.
