Elon Schedules 1:00pm News Conference

Elon College Athletic Director Dave Blank has scheduled a 1:00pm news conference for today where he will introduce Davidson College assistant Matt Matheny as head basketball coach. The press conference will take place in the Atkins Room on the second floor of the Koury Athletic Center for anyone in the area who wants to go.

Matheny is a 1992 Davidson graduate, and has been an assistant with the program since 1993. Blank is familiar with Matheny since both Davidson and Elon compete in the SoCon. He has also seen Davidson’s success during this time, with the Wildcats collecting 310 victories, winning five SoCon Tournaments and appearing in four NCAA Tournaments since Matheny has been on staff. This seems like a very logical hire. Hopefully there are plans in the works to upgrade Elon’s facilities and make Coach Matheny’s job a little easier.
