[Elon built double-digit leads in both halves and eventually seized a 21-point cushion before settling for what easily became its largest winning margin in the league this season.

6. Jackson’s 33 points lifts Bruins

[The Group AAA runner-up last year to Heritage-Newport News, the Bruins brought some talent. Jackson and fellow Division I signees Gerda Gatling (Stony Brook) and Briana Scott (Georgia Southern) combined for 56 points, the same number Franklin County scored as a team.]
