For the second night in a row, the Blue Devils are going to be playing a game that they are expected to win by a comfortable margin. They made short work out of the Cornell Big Red last night, and no one played more than 26 minutes in the victory. Elon has itself an experienced team though, and G Jack Isenbarger and F Lucas Troutman are leading a club that did a lot of learning on the go last year. Two years ago in this very building, these two men both came off of the bench for the Phoenix and kept them within a 35-point spread against a Duke team that went on to win the National Championship. This time around, on short rest with a much less experienced side, the No. 1 team in the land is going to find itself tripping up from an ATS standpoint against an Elon team that thinks that this is the Super Bowl. It won’t be an intimidating night to be a member of the visiting team for a rare change in Durham.
