BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Jack Isenbarger scored 18 points to lead Elon over Florida Atlantic 67-62 on Sunday.
Sebastian Koch added 14 points and seven rebounds for Elon (6-6). The Phoenix shot just 38.5 percent from the floor, but was helped by going 8 of 20 from beyond the arc and making 19 of their 23 free throws.
Elon led early, but Florida Atlantic (3-9) made it a game in the second half and led at 60-57 with 2:42 left. Isenbarger drilled a trey and hit four free throws inside of eight seconds to seal the win.
Elon went on a 15-4 run early in the first, led by treys from Isenbarger and Koch and several trips to the line, en route to 13 point lead at intermission at 40-27.
