ELON, N.C. (AP) - Connor Burchfield scored 19 points to lead four teammates in double-figure scoring as William & Mary snapped a two-game losing streak by winning at Elon, 80-73 in a Colonial Athletic Association contest Saturday night.

The Tribe, which boasts two five-game win streaks this season, lost back-to-back home games to Towson and Northeastern last week — their only back-to-back losses this season.

With the game tied at 71-71, Matt Milon drilled a 3 to give the Tribe the lead with 2:06 remaining, and Burchfield added a trey to make it a six-point lead and padded it with two free throws with :26 left.

Cohn hit 5 of 7 from distance and added 16 points for William & Mary (13-6, 6-2). Nathan Knight added 14 points and Milon contributed 13.

Brian Dawkins scored 19 points to lead Elon (12-9, 4-4). Dainan Swoope added 14 points, Tyle Seibring and Steven Santa Ana 11 each and Dmirti Thompson 10.
