ELON, N.C. (AP) -- Ola Atoyebi scored 18 points and Elon rallied from a 13-point second-half deficit to beat Furman 66-61 on Saturday.
Brett James added 14 points and seven rebounds and Montell Watson scored 11 points for the Phoenix (4-3, 2-0 Southern Conference), who outscored the Paladins 45-29 in the second half for their second straight win.
Trailing 34-21 with 18:41 left, Elon went on a 23-9 run, capped by Atoyebi's layup with 8:06 left that put Elon ahead to stay.
Furman cut Elon's seven-point lead to two, but Monte Sanders hit four free throws in the final 29 seconds to ice it for Elon, which improved to 4-0 at home.
Elon shot 55 percent from the field and held a 26-18 rebounding advantage.
Maryland point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.
Louisville's Chinanu Onuaku, who recently underwent a medical procedure to correct a heart rhythm issue detected during the combine, will keep his name in the NBA draft pool.
