Elon routs Manchester 84-49

ELON, N.C. (AP) Ryley Beaumont posted his second double-double of the season with 11 points and 12 rebounds as Elon routed Manchester 84-49 Monday.

Jack Isenbarger added 14 points, Sebastian Koch 13 and Lucas Troutman 12 for the Phoenix (8-5), who were coming off a 70-69 win over Columbia.

Elon pushed the lead into double digits in the first five minutes and led the Division III Spartans 40-8 with 36 seconds left in the first half.

Silas Sims hit a 3-pointer at the 10-second mark to make it 40-11, still a season low by an Elon opponent as Manchester shot only 18.5 percent from the field (5 of 27).

Of the 15 Elon players who saw action, 12 scored. The Phoenix shot 50.7 percent (34 of 67) and hit 10 of 33 from long range, while Austin Hamilton had a career-high nine assists.

Sims led the Spartans (4-7) with 15 points.

Sean Taylor is scaring Pro Bowl punters like Tress Way to this day

Sean Taylor is scaring Pro Bowl punters like Tress Way to this day

The Pro Bowl may not count for anything other than an accolade on a player's resume, but it has delivered some memorable moments over the years. 

Maybe the best Pro Bowl play ever was when Sean Taylor leveled former Bills punter Brian Moorman when the AFC tried to run a fake in the 2006 Pro Bowl. 

Tress Way is representing the Redskins in the 2020 Pro Bowl and still has that play in the back of his mind. 

When asked whether he'd try to pull off a fake punt of his own on Sunday, Way said yes but under specific conditions. 

Minkah Fitzpatrick and Jamal Adams are the starting safeties for the AFC, so while both are great players and Adams is a hard-hitter in his own right, none of them are Taylor. 

So if you see the NFC pull off a fake punt and Tress Way quickly gets rid of the ball, you'll know why.

Braves' Dansby Swanson admits he hates facing Stephen Strasburg

Braves' Dansby Swanson admits he hates facing Stephen Strasburg

After winning the NL Cy Young award in back-to-back seasons, the New York Mets' Jacob deGrom holds the title of undisputed best pitcher in the NL East—if not the entire major leagues.

So when asked at the Braves' annual winter FanFest, Ozzie Albies and Freddie Freeman were quick to admit that they hated facing deGrom more than any other pitcher in baseball.

But shortstop Dansby Swanson has another nemesis: Stephen Strasburg.

Dansby Swanson is not a fan of Stephen Strasburg from r/baseball

Swanson is 6-for-27 (.222) with one home run and 15 strikeouts against Strasburg, making it understandable why he'd hate facing the Nationals starter.

Unfortunately for Swanson, Strasburg signed a seven-year deal with the Nationals in December. The Braves infielder isn't going to be able to avoid facing him anytime soon.
