It was a debut to remember for the Elon University Women's Basketball Team as it took home its inaugural game in the Colonial Athletic Association with a 60-50 win over the University of Delaware.

The Phoenix was led by a trio of Zora Stephenson, Malaya Johnson and Lauren Brown who all scored 10 apiece to fuel a strong shooting performance in which Elon hit nearly 50 percent of its shots.

The win was sparked by a quick run to grab the lead early, and the Phoenix grabbed it for good with 7:21 left in the first half and never looked back as it led for 37:25 of the game's 40 minutes.

Elon was strong on defense throughout, holding the Blue Hens to 18-of-50 shooting and forcing 23 turnovers

The Phoenix, however, struggled from the free throw line, making just 30 percent of its attempts on the night.

Up next, Elon travels to Williamsburg, Va. to face William and Mary on Jan. 9.
