Josh Gross and Ricky Hickman each added 14 points for the
Spartans (15-11, 8-7 Southern Conference), while Kyle Hines chipped
in 12 points and eight rebounds.

Colin Wyatt had a game-high 25 points for Elon (6-22, 4-11) on

during the next four minutes.

UNCG remains a game behind Appalachian State for second place in
its division. The top two teams in its division get first-round
byes in the Southern Conference tournament.
