Lucas Troutman scored 14 points and Austin Hamilton added 12 as Elon held off South Carolina 58-53 Tuesday night. The Phoenix (1-1) never trailed in the second half as Elon upended the first power-conference team to visit Alumni Gym, its on-campus facility. It took the Gamecocks (1-1) more than 15 minutes to take their only lead and that edge lasted just one possession. South Carolina missed all 12 of its first-half 3-point shots. Anthony Gill and Malik Cooke scored nine points apiece for South Carolina. Elon led 34-23 at halftime after Brett Ervin's third 3-pointer. South Carolina closed to within one point twice in the second half.
