NORFOLK, Va. -- Behind a barrage of three-pointers, the Old Dominion women's basketball team earned revenge against Marshall, routing the Herd, 79-53, on Saturday afternoon at the Ted Constant Center.
Old Dominion (18-9, 9-6) knocked down 13 three-pointers, one shy of tying the school record set earlier this season, and utilized a 27-2 run in the first half to cruise to the victory.
Marshall (15-13, 9-6) defeated the Monarchs, 57-48, back on Jan. 3 in Huntington. ODU scored as many points in the first half, 48, today than they did in that game.
"Overall, great team win. We really paid attention when it came to our defensive effort and rebounding the basketball. We tweaked some things on offense and we want to take advantage of our speed." - Coach McCray
Five Monarchs finished in double figures, led by Ajah Wayne's 21 points. Wayne and Aziah Hudson, who finished with 15, combined for 32 points and nine three-pointers in the first half and were a big reason for ODU's 48-20 halftime lead.
