Elon currently sits in first place in the North Division after a 88-87 win over Chattanooga last Saturday night. Elon currently has a half-game lead over the second-place tie between Appy State & Greensboro. The Catamounts are a full-game behind the Phoenix and a half-game up on UTC. The Catamounts trail in the all-time series with Elon 37-42, but hold a 24-13 edge in Cullowhee - Western has won the last three games and six of the last eight.
