ELON, N.C. -- Jack Isenbarger scored 23 points, including the 1,000th of his career, as Elon won its fourth straight game, beating Chattanooga 85-61 Thursday night in Southern Conference action.
Isenbarger hit 8 of 18 from the field, including 7 of 13 from 3-point range, as he became the 35th player in program history to eclipse 1,000 points.
Chattanooga (8-12, 3-4), which was hitting 44 percent from the field over its past nine games, made just 30.6 percent (19 of 62) Thursday, including 26.5 percent (9 of 34) in the second half. The Mocs were leading the SoCon with a plus-4.6 rebound margin but were beaten 42-41 on the boards by Elon.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
