Old Dominion (18-8, 12-3 CAA) will be looking for its fifth consecutive home win as the Lady Monarchs continue to jockey for position in the Colonial Athletic Association standings. Currently, ODU is tied with UNC Wilmington for second in the league standings with the tiebreaker in hand.
William & Mary (3-22, 2-13 CAA) is coming off a 10-point win over Georgia State on Sunday. The Tribe, who have yet to win away from home in 11 tries this season, are led by Taysha Pye's 16.9 points per game.
The squads met in Williamsburg on January 27 with Old Dominion winning 68-55. Junior Tia Lewis posted her seventh double-double of the season with 13 points and 15 rebounds and the Lady Monarchs dished out a season-high 23 assists in the victory.
Old Dominion has won 51 consecutive games over the Tribe, a streak that is the second longest active winning streak against an opponent (Stanford has won 52 straight over Washington State) in Division I women's basketball.
