SERIES VS. CHARLOTTE ODU leads, 14-12. The Monarchs defeated the 49er's last year in the season opener, 69-68. Charlotte last beat ODU, 105-102 in double overtime here in the Constant Center. The two teams were Sun Belt Conference rivals from 1982-1991.
ODU AND THE ATLANTIC 10 The Monarchs play four teams from the Atlantic 10 this year. ODU lost at Richmond and Dayton earlier this year. They will play Duquesne on Dec. 30th here in the Constant Center.
ODU DEFENSE The 38 points for Mount St. Mary's was the lowest total points scored for the Mountaineers since Feb. 10, 1950 when they tallied 37 points against Loyola. It's the second time this season that ODU has held an opponent to only 38 points as Bethune Cookman managed the same total in a 69-38 ODU victory on November 15. ODU ranks second nationally in scoring defense.
