– Old Dominion University Hall of Famer Anne Donovan died Wednesday, June 13. She was 56. "Anne was a great ambassador for what intercollegiate athletics is all about. She was an outstanding scholar as a student, a terrific performer and teammate, plus a caring and engaged member of her community," ODU President John R. Broderick said. "She was respected and loved by everyone whose path crossed hers at Old Dominion. Our condolences go out to her family and many fiends." Donovan was recognized by virtually every post season and All-American squad in the nation during her ODU career, earning Kodak All-American honors for three years and Academic All-American honors for two straight seasons. Her honors culminated in 1983 with her naming as the Naismith Trophy winner as the national Player of the Year as selected by coaches and awarded an NCAA post-graduate scholarship for her academic achievements. Anne completed her four years at ODU with a 3.5 cumulative average in her major of leisure studies and became the all-time leading scorer and rebounder in ODU history with 2,719 points and 1,976 rebounds. She is still the NCAA's all-time shot blocker with 801. "We are deeply saddened to have lost one of the all-time greats to ever play the game of women's basketball. Anne was a national champion, Olympic gold medal winner as both a player and a coach, and a national champion as a professional head coach. Few have or ever will enjoy the type of success Anne has experienced throughout her career," ODU Director of Athletics Dr. Wood Selig said. "She was a role model student-athlete at ODU. Throughout her college and professional career Anne was one of ODU's best ambassadors both for the institution and Lady Monarch basketball. Anne's legacy will be permanent and ever lasting and will forever remain as the foundation upon which the Lady Monarch brand become national and synonymous

"I think it's creative and I'm happy that Conference USA is trying to be proactive and trying to do something," said ODU head coach Jeff Jones. "Because just doing the same old thing obviously wasn't working. Every year we've had at least five really good teams and yet people nationally, and even people that support Conference USA teams, I don't think clearly understood how good those five or six teams have been. But because the RPI divide was so big between the top and the bottom that just kept weighing teams down. This addresses that divide between the top and the bottom. It's a creative, aggressive, forward-thinking way to help the league, particularly the teams at the top."
ODU is in 11th place after day one.
