One of the Fightin' Blue Hen's three victories over Old Dominion came at the Ted Constant Convocation Center in a game that snapped ODU's 122 CAA home game win streak.

However, in the rematch, the Lady Monarchs captured their 12th straight CAA title with a 66-58 win in the CAA Tournament championship game. Three seasons ago, during the 2004-05 season, the Blue Hens swept the season series from the Lady Monarchs, however, once again, the Lady Monarchs rebounded by defeating Delaware, 78-74, in the championship game of the CAA Tournament. The game, which gave ODU its 14th consecutive CAA title, went into overtime and was one of the most memorable tournament finales in memory.
