Isenbarger named to all-conference squad

Zionsville native Jack Isenbarger, a sophomore guard for the Elon University men’s basketball team, has been named to the Southern Conference’s first-team all-conference squad.

The 2010 Zionsville High School graduate was also named second team all-conference by the media. The first-team honor was voted upon by the league’s 12 coaches.

Isenbarger led the Phoenix with 14.5 points per game during the 2011-2012 season, which saw Elon compile a 15-16 record overall and a 9-9 mark in league play, good for runner-up in the conference. His 29.4 minutes per game and 87.1-percent effort from the free throw line also were team bests.

Elon fell 83-67 to Davidson in a Southern Conference Tournament semifinal on March 4, ending its season.
