The Elon University Phoenix (12-12) fell to the Northeastern University Huskies (11-13) on Sunday afternoon’s game, 69-45. This game was the annual Play-4-Kay game, an event stemming from the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. The foundation honors former Elon women's basketball head coach Kay Yow, who passed away from breast cancer in 2009. The foundation raises money for not only breast cancer patients but all forms of cancer.
History was made in the Schar Center on Sunday afternoon as the first ever Elon female jersey was retired. Venessa Corbett’s No. 55 jersey was lifted into the wings of the Phoenix’s home arena. Corbett is the Elon all-time leader in points with 2,430. Corbett also holds records in field goals per game, and rebounds per game.
