Women's Hoops Tops TTU to Win Buccaneer Classic

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- With an 80-73 victory over Tennessee Tech, the Old Dominion women's basketball team was crowned champions of the Buccaneer Classic hosted by Charleston Southern on Sunday at The Buc Dome.

Tournament MVP Dejah Carter and fellow All-Tournament Team selection Aziah Hudson both put up career highs in scoring to lead Old Dominion (5-1). Carter finished with a game-high 20 points to go along with eight rebounds, while Hudson had 19.

The Monarchs led 40-36 at the half and extended their lead to as much as 10 in the third quarter.

However, Tennessee Tech (4-2), a team that defeated perennial Conference USA power Middle Tennessee earlier this season, clawed back to within a possession in the fourth, mainly via the charity stripe. But, down the stretch, ODU converted its free throws, finishing the game 22-of-27 from the line for a season-best percentage of 81.5 percent.

Victoria Morris joined Carter and Hudson in double figures with 14 points. Taylor Edwards added eight points, 11 rebounds, and six assists and Ajah Wayne had nine points and 12 boards.

Up next, ODU returns home to host Longwood on Thursday at 11 a.m. ET for the eighth annual Education Day.
