Most interesting game in the conference tonight is at Fifth Third Arena where Cincinnati plays host to 7-2 Xavier. The Musketeers have a win over Villanova to their credit.

A couple of interesting notes about Saturday's opponent. Elon used to own the best nickname in the country, the Fighting Christians. Unfortunately, in 1999 a move to D1 prompted a switch to the "Phoenix". For a good laugh, check out, a brave attempt by a diehard supporter who apparently had a strong following of Phoenix fans:

"I am pulling down. I am tired of: the general attitude of Elon fans, the holier than thou attitude by athletes, the attitude by some parents, the lack of support by donors and the school, the board being used for flame bait, elsewherevI just think it is better for me (and everyone) that the board just finally die."

Not sure if said site was a joke or not, but it does serve as some insight into the mind of the opponent. Make sure not to cross the opposing fans on Saturday. They should pack the visitor's section.
