Shay Burnett
For the second straight season, the Phoenix are going dancing. Third-seeded Elon held off a late comeback by top-seeded Drexel to pull out a 57-45 win and capture the 2018 Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Women's Basketball Championship in front of a near-sellout crowd at the Daskalakis Athletic Center (DAC).
Trailing 49-31 enter the fourth quarter, Drexel (26-7) mounted a furious comeback, outscoring Elon (25-7) by a margin of 14-8, to pull within six points with four minutes remaining. Elon regrouped and scored the final six points of the game to extend its winning streak 13-straight victories and punch its ticket to the NCAA Championship.
The Phoenix was led by CAA Championship Most Outstanding Performer Shay Burnett (5'9''-G), who had 13 points on 6-for-9 shooting to go along with five rebounds and three assists. Senior Malaya Johnson (6'3''-C), who was also on the All-Tournament Team finished with 14 points. Rookie Saadia Munford (5'6''-G) added 13 points and eight rebounds.
Elon, backed by eight points from Burnett, set the tone early, jumping out to a 12-6 lead. Drexel's Aubree Brown (5'11''-G) made it a four-point game, 12-8, at 4:22 but the Phoenix closed out the first quarter on a 7-1 run. Brown banked in a three-pointer to end a six-minute Drexel scoring drought and cut the deficit to 20-12. Burnett had the answer two minutes later with a rainbow three-pointer from the top of the key, and then Munford hit a pair of free throws with 28 ticks on the clock to send the Phoenix into the break with a 27-17 advantage. Elon shot 55.0 percent in the first half, connecting on 11-of-20 shots while the Dragons went just 7-for-33 from the field.
The Phoenix held the Dragons without a point for the first 4:17 of the third quarter until Bailey Greenberg hit a pair of free throws. Twenty seconds later, rookie Hannah Nihill hit Drexel's first field goal of the period with a three-pointer to make the score 36-22. The two teams battled it out for the remainder of the period, but Elon held a comfortable 49-31 lead heading into the fourth.
The Dragons came out strong in the final quarter, hitting three of the first four shots to cut the gap 51-38. With 6:30 left to play, Nihill buried three free throws to cut the deficit to 10 points. After a stop on the defensive end, the Dragons got a huge bucket from Lidge to pull them within 51-43. Drexel turned their defense into offense once more, this time Niki Metzel came through with a lay-up to pull the Dragons within 51-45.
Nihill finished with a team-high 14 points and five steals. Greenberg and senior Kelsi Lidge (5'8''-F) were named to the All-Tournament Team. Greenberg tallied 13 points while Lidge had eight points.

BEYOND THE BOX SCORE
The attendance for the CAA Championship title game was 2,441. The capacity of the Daskalakis Athletic Center (DAC) is 2,509.
Saturday's championship contest was the first No. 1 vs. No. 3 match-up since 2015.
Elon is only the second No. 3 seed in CAA Championship history to win a title. The only other time was in 1992 when Old Dominion topped No. 1 seed East Carolina.
Elon won its second-straight CAA Championship on an opponents' home court.
The Phoenix have won their last six CAA tournament games, dating back to last year.
Elon Head Coach Charlotte Smith is 7-2 all-time in CAA Championship action. She is now eighth all-time in league history for tournament wins.
The Dragons are 15-1 at the DAC this season.
Drexel Head Coach Denise Dillon is 17-13 all-time in CAA Championship play. The 17 victories are the fourth most in league history.
