Davidson beats Elon 86-69 for 12th straight win

ELON, N.C. (AP) Brian Sullivan scored 26 points and De’Mon Brooks added 24 as Davidson was all business in closing out its third straight and 23rd overall Southern Conference regular-season title with an 86-69 pasting of Elon Saturday night.

Elon was the only team to defeat Davidson (19-11, 15-1) in conference this season.

The Wildcats shot 62-percent from the field (31-50) and outrebounded Elon 31-21, taking the lead 2 minutes into the game on a Brooks drive and never giving it back. The lead was 10 at halftime and grew to 21 early in the second and nearly 30, 71-42, after a Sullivan 3-pointer with 10:06 to play.

Chris Czerapowicz and Jordan Barham scored 11 each for Davidson

Ryley Beaumont led the Phoenix (18-13, 11-5) with 19 points. Elon shot 45 percent but connected on just 23 field goals and is tied with Wofford, who beat them Friday, for third in conference.
