ELON, N.C. (AP) Sebastian Koch hit six of Elon's 16 3-pointers as the Phoenix routed Bridgewater (Va.) 95-51 Tuesday night.

Koch, with 18 points, was 6 of 7 from the field - all from beyond the arc - for Elon (1-1), while Jack Isenbarger made 5 of 9 3-pointers to finish with 19 points.

The Phoenix finished 16 of 34 from long range. The 44-point margin of victory is the largest for Elon in a home opener since the 1917-18 season when Elon beat Atlanta Christian, 66-11.

Lucas Troutman added 17 and Ryley Beaumont 15 for the Phoenix, who shot 62.5 percent in the first half (20 of 32), while knocking down 10 of 18 from long range.

Bridgewater, a Division III team which counted the game as an exhibition, used 18 players, with none scoring in double figures. Tavis Stapleton led the Eagles with nine points.

Elon forced 25 turnovers.

Max Scherzer thoroughly enjoyed the All-Star experience in D.C.

Max Scherzer thoroughly enjoyed the All-Star experience in D.C.

All-Star Weekend is entertaining for fans and provides and much-needed break in the 162-game MLB season.

It’s not all just for fun, though. Following his start Tuesday night, Max Scherzer shared the benefits of being able to spend a few days sharing a locker room with players from across the league.

Being in the clubhouse, talking to veterans, talking to guys who have been here, getting to know everybody, getting the personalities, you can actually learn a lot from the other players in the league. They’re watching you, they’re watching your team and you get these conversations and it’s great. You’re talking about everybody and you find little things in the game that make them successful and what made you successful and see if you can get better.

Scherzer also didn’t hold back when talking about how great a job the city and his team did hosting the rest of the league. This is his sixth season as an All-Star, so he's speaking from quite a bit of experience.

It was awesome, what an atmosphere. I thought we were a great host team, all the other players in here loved the facilities and the treatment they received - D.C. did it right.

So according to Max Scherzer, the All-Star Game is great, but All-Star Weekend in D.C. is as good as it gets.
