NORFOLK, Va. - Old Dominion is set to host Bowie State in its exhibition finale as the Lady Monarchs prepare for their regular season opener this Sunday against Georgia Tech. The contest is set to get underway at 7 p.m. as ODU welcomes the visiting Lady Bulldogs to the Ted Constant Center.
The game will be broadcast on ESPN Radio 94.1 FM with play-by-play from Tony Mercurio and color analysis from Susan Montgomery.
