 Old Dominion women's basketball action returns to the Ted Constant Center this weekend, as the Monarchs host Florida Atlantic and FIU in Conference USA play. ODU takes on FAU on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. ET followed by FIU on Saturday at 4 p.m. ET.

Both games will be streamed on and aired locally on the ODU Sports Radio Network featuring commentary from Doug Ripley and Susan Montgomery.
