Elon Men’s Basketball Team Hopes to Delay History Tonight

The Elon men’s basketball team will play West Virginia in the opening round of the Shriners Children’s Classic basketball tournament tonight. A loss by the Phoenix today means that Elon will be part of college basketball history. You see, West Virginia Coach Bob Huggins is currently tied for fifth place with Bob Knight on the NCAA’s all-time division win list. If the Mountaineers beat Elon today, Huggins will move into a tie for fourth with retired coach Roy Williams. Huggins currently has 902 career wins. Tonight’s game is scheduled to tip off at 9 o’clock and will be broadcast by ESPN2.
