Old Dominion (15-7, 9-2 CAA) is coming off a 67-58 setback at James Madison on Sunday. Junior Tia Lewis, who is just seven points shy of becoming the 29th all-time Lady Monarch to reach the 1,000-point scoring plateau, led ODU with 18 points.
Northeastern (8-14, 3-8 CAA) has dropped three consecutive games, but did pick up a 24-point road win at Georgia State on January 20. The Huskies are led by Kashaia Cannon's 12.5 points per game, which ranks ninth in the CAA.
Northeastern is second in the CAA in three-point field goals made (148), while ODU is second in the nation in defending the three, holding its opponents to just 23.4% shooting from beyond the arc.
