Elon Phoenix Basketball TicketsThe Elon Phoenix competes in the Schar Center, a 160,000-square-feet arena that boasts a seating capacity of 5,100 in Elon, N.C. In 2014, the university transitioned its men's basketball program, in addition to its 16 other varsity sports programs, from the Division II Southern Conference to the Division I Colonial Athletic Association. The basketball program has cultivated players like Jesse Branson, who have won spots on NBA teams. The Phoenix have also cranked out nine conference championship wins with the first win occurring in 1932 under the guidance of Head Coach Douglas Clyde "Peahead" Walker. Throughout the team's history, many men's basketball players have been awarded a spot in the Hall of Fame. Because Elon is so new to the Southern Conference, a "true" rivalry with another school is yet to develop. However, one speculated up-and-coming rival relationship is between the Phoenix and the Furman Paladins. Find Elon Phoenix basketball tickets at StubHub.
