The Elon Phoenix and Michigan Wolverines play Monday night at the Crisler Center.
The Elon Phoenix look for another road win after beating Charlotte on Friday. The Elon Phoenix are averaging 85 points on 47.8 percent shooting and allowing 74 points on 36.9 percent shooting. Dmitri Thompson is averaging 21 points and eight rebounds while Tanner Samson is averaging 12 points and five rebounds. Luke Eddy is dishing eight assists and Christian Hairston is grabbing six rebounds. The Elon Phoenix exploded on Charlotte by scoring 53 points in the first half and was able to win despite turning the ball over 17 times. Elon set the tone with a nice season opening victory, but this is still a young team that will need to refocus heading into this matchup against even tougher competition. Elon has lost seven of its last 10 road games.
The Michigan Wolverines look for a 2-0 start after beating Northern Michigan on Friday. The Michigan Wolverines are averaging 70 points on 51.9 percent shooting and allowing 44 points on 33.3 percent shooting. Caris LeVert is averaging 18 points and five assists while Aubrey Dawkins is averaging 15 points and six rebounds. Spike Albrecht is dishing three assists and Kameron Chatman is grabbing four rebounds. The Michigan Wolverines played well in their warm up season opener, especially on the defensive side in which they forced 19 turnovers and allowed just 18 second half points. Michigan has to stay hot with games against Xavier and UConn ahead. Michigan has won eight of its last 11 home games.
The Phoenix are 14-6 ATS in their last 20 road games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 non-conference games. The Wolverines are 0-7 ATS in their last 7 non-conference games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a S.U. win.
Elon hasn't been good on the road and Michigan has better players/atheltes everywhere you look. I look for the Wolverines to win in blowout fashion.
