Birmingham, AL (Sports Network) - Ryley Beaumont recorded a double-double with 14 points and 14 rebounds to lead the Elon Phoenix over the Samford Bulldogs, 63-62, in a Southern Conference clash at the Pete Hanna Center.

Samford (10-18, 8-7) was led by a 24-point performance from Clide Geffrard Jr. who made good on 6-of-8 3-point attempts. Raijon Kelly added a double-double with 17 points and 11 assists, while Tim Williams had 16 points and eight rebounds. The Bulldogs saw a brief two-game win streak come to an end.

Elon led 38-30 at intermission after shooting a stellar 66.7 percent from the floor in the first half. The hosts also shot the ball well through the first 20 minutes of the contest, hitting at a 50-percent clip.
