ELON, N.C. (AP) -- Mitch McCarron scored 29 points and grabbed nine rebounds as Metro State outlasted Elon for a 75-74 upset Monday night.
Metro State, the No. 1 ranked team in Division II, used a 21-10 run capped off by a Raul Delgado 3-pointer to take their largest lead of 16 late in the first half.
Elon (2-4) climbed back as Sebastian Koch hit a 3-pointer, Lucas Troutman made a pair of free throws, and Tanner Samson netted another triple to make the score 73-72 with 1:24 remaining.
The teams exchanged free throws to make the score 75-74. After a missed free throw by McCarron, Koch missed the potential go-ahead layup and Troutman's offensive rebound and putback as time expired didn't fall either, giving the Phoenix their fourth-straight loss.
Austin Hamilton had 15 points and six assists to pace Elon.
Nicholas Kay scored 13 points for the Roadrunners and Delgado added 11.
