Lady Eagles play tough, fall to Elon

STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) - The Georgia Southern Lady Eagles continued a three game league home stand Monday as they played host to the Phoenix of Elon University.

The Eagles trailed after a slow half, but Anna Claire Knight took the feed and went into the paint for the reverse layup. Knight led all scorers with 17 points.

The Phoenix kept the pressure on as Zora Stephenson spotted up on the left side for three as Elon extended their lead.

GSU started to put some points on the board as Danielle Spencer missed from the top of the key but was there to put in her own put back.

However, it was not enough as the eagles fell to Elon 68-49.

The Lady Eagles return to Hanner again Saturday to take on Davidson.
