NORFOLK, Va. -- Preseason All-Americans Lexie Brown and Rebecca Greenwell combined for 50 points for 16th-ranked Duke and the Old Dominion women's basketball team fell to the Blue Devils, 84-51, on Wednesday evening at the Ted Constant Center.
"This was a tough one," said head coach Nikki McCray-Penson. "I thought fatigue played a factor. We've had a pretty a tough schedule the past six days."
Old Dominion (0-5) set a new single-game record for three-point attempts with 30, but could never find a rhythm from beyond the arc, as the Monarchs connected on just seven of those 30 attempts. The game was ODU's fourth in six days.
On the other side, Duke (3-1), who jumped out to an early lead and led 22-6 at the end of the first quarter, shot 65 percent from three-point land.
"Against a team like Duke, you have to hit shots," said McCray. "We talked about it. We just didn't hit enough open shots."
Victoria Morris led ODU with 15 points to go along with five rebounds and three assists. Morris has now scored in double figures in all five games this season.
