NORFOLK, Va. -- In the regular-season home finale, the Old Dominion women's basketball team pulled away from Longwood in the second half to defeat the Lancers, 69-48, on Monday evening at the Ted Constant Center.
Dejah Carter led Old Dominion (19-9) with 17 points on 8-of-9 shooting.
The Monarchs outscored Longwood (3-25) by a margin of 35-17 in the second half, including 22-7 in the fourth quarter. ODU led 34-31 at the half.
"We had some great positives. 50 points in the paint. We shot 51 percent. And we had some really solid individual performances. But, their defense stifled us a little in the first half. We played to their tempo. We're going to focus on the positives, but we also have to prep for this kind of defense." - Coach McCray
