Phoenix set to compete in Asheville Championship
ELON, North Carolina – The Elon University men’s basketball team will compete in the second annual Asheville Championship on November 11-13 at Harrah’s Cherokee Center in Asheville, North Carolina.
The Phoenix will be one of four teams participating in the tournament along with East Tennessee State University, Harvard and Louisiana-Lafayette. Elon opens the tournament against ETSU on Friday, November 11 at 8:30 p.m., then will face Harvard or Louisiana-Lafayette in his final match on Sunday, November 13.
This year’s 2022 Asheville Championship will air on the ESPN family of networks on Friday, November 11 (ESPN+) and Sunday, November 13 (ESPNU).
Tickets are expected to go on sale in early September through each school’s box office, website and AshevilleChampionship.com.
Elon is 1-3 all-time against ETSU with the last meeting between the two teams coming in 2005. The Phoenix have never faced Harvard or Louisiana-Lafayette on the basketball hardwood.
As part of this year’s championship events, tournament organizer KemperLesnik, in partnership with Buncombe County Schools, Asheville City Schools and Haywood County Schools, announced the inaugural program ” Going Pro in Sports” presented by Champion Credit Union. The initiative is a joint effort between the Asheville Championship and the three local school districts that will help improve the current curriculum, provide hands-on training in the athletic profession, and open up potential new career opportunities for students in the community of Asheville.
Elon’s full schedule for 2022-23 will be released at a later date.
