Isenbarger hit a 3 with 6:32 left in the first half, sparking a 10-2 run by the Phoenix which pushed their lead to 34-24 a couple minutes later. Elon, which shot 53 percent and made 10 of 22 from 3-point range, never trailed again.
Tim Williams scored 22 points to pace Samford (11-17, 5-8), and his three-point play 3 1/2 minutes into the second half pulled the Bulldogs within four, but they would get no closer.
Samford made just 3 of 11 from deep and 12 of 23 free throws.
