NEWARK, Del. (AP) - Isaiah Hunter scored 25 points, and Old Dominion closed out its regular season with a 69-53 victory over Delaware on Saturday.

The Monarchs (21-8, 13-5 Colonial Athletic Association) clinched the No. 4 seed in the CAA tournament and will face Northeastern in the quarterfinals March 4 at 2:30 p.m. in Richmond, VA.

Drew Williamson added 13 points for the Monarchs, and Alex Loughton had nine points and 11 rebounds.

The Blue Hens (8-20, 4-14) have lost 20 games in consecutive seasons for the first time in school history. Delaware will be the No. 9 seed for the CAA tournament and will face No. 8 Drexel in the first round on March 3.

In his home finale, Harding Nana had 31 points and 18 rebounds - his 15th double-double of the season and the 39th of his career.

Old Dominion never trailed and led 28-15 at halftime, holding Delaware to its lowest first-half point total since the 1992 season.

Delaware got within seven after Nana made two free throws with 9:45 remaining. But they would never get any closer as the Monarchs went on a 10-2 run to maintain control.

The pairings are set for the 2006 Aeropostale CAA Men's Basketball Championship, which will be held March 3-6 at the Richmond Coliseum in Richmond, Va.

UNC Wilmington (22-7, 15-3) and George Mason (22-6, 15-3) shared the CAA regular-season title, but the Seahawks earned the #1 seed based on the conference's tie-breaking procedures.
