Elon holds off Columbia in 68-65 overtime win
ELON 68, COLUMBIA 65
ELON, N.C. (AP) -- Lucas Troutman scored 16 points and grabbed
seven rebounds to lift Elon to a 68-65 overtime win over
Columbia on Sunday.
Elon (4-4) went 7 of 8 from the foul line in overtime after a
Columbia rally that tied the game at 57 at the end of
regulation. Austin Hamilton scored 17 points, while Kevin Blake
added 12, including the two OT free throws that gave Elon the
lead it would hold.
Columbia (4-4) was held scoreless for nearly nine minutes in the
first half as Elon went on a 17-2 run, but battled back and
trailed just 29-24 at the break. Columbia never led but kept the
score close in the second half, tying it at the buzzer on a
3-pointer by Alex Rosenberg, who led the Lions with 19 points.
All four meetings between the teams have been decided by five
points or less.
