Metro State upsets Elon

ELON, N.C. -- Mitch McCarron scored 29 points and grabbed nine rebounds as Metro State outlasted Elon for a 75-74 upset Monday night. Having beaten Fairleigh Dickinson last week, the Roadrunners became the first Division II team to win twice in the NIT Season Tip-Off, both against Division I foes. The games have been been exhibitions for Metro State.

Metro State, the No. 1 team in Division II, used a 21-10 run capped off by a Raul Delgado 3-pointer to take its largest lead of 16 late in the first half.

Elon (2-4) climbed back as Sebastian Koch hit a 3-pointer, Lucas Troutman made a pair of free throws, and Tanner Samson netted another triple to make the score 73-72 with 1:24 remaining.

The teams exchanged free throws to make the score 75-74. After a missed free throw by McCarron, Koch missed the potential go-ahead layup and Troutman's offensive rebound and putback as time expired didn't fall either, giving the Phoenix their fourth consecutive loss.

Austin Hamilton had 15 points and six assists to pace Elon.

Nicholas Kay scored 13 points for the Roadrunners and Delgado added 11.
