What to Know

The North Dakota Fighting Hawks will take on the Elon Phoenix at 8 p.m. ET Thursday at Schar Center. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W.'

Things couldn't have gone much worse for North Dakota as they lost 93-63 to the Pacific Tigers on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Elon ended up a good deal behind the Harvard Crimson when they played on Sunday, losing 92-77.

The Fighting Hawks are expected to lose this next one by 6.5. Those betting on them against the spread shouldn't have high expectations for them since the squad is 0-2 ATS when expected to lose.
