The UNC Greensboro Spartans are starting to show some signs of life lately, but they're still one of the worst offensive teams in the country, which includes being ranked 318th in three point percentage. The Elon Phoenix haven't played anybody yet, but they're undefeated on the season, have shown above-average defensive ability and have certainly shot the ball better than UNC Greensboro. I'll take a shot with Elon and the points here.
