Riding a three-game home winning streak, the Old Dominion women's basketball team hosts Florida Atlantic on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Ted Constant Center.

The game will be streamed on ESPN3 and aired locally on ESPN 94.1 radio featuring commentary from Doug Ripley and Susan Montgomery.

Old Dominion (6-19, 4-7 C-USA) is coming off one of its best offensive performances of the season last weekend in the win at Southern Miss. The Monarchs shot over 60 percent from both the field and beyond the arc, setting season highs in both categories, en route to a 19-point victory. 

Kelly Loftus led the Monarchs in the win over the Lady Eagles with a season-high 24 points, including six threes. Loftus, with 968 career points, is now 32 points away from joining the 1,000-point club. 

Individually, freshman Victoria Morris is averaging a team-high 11.9 points per game and lead all freshmen in the nations in three-pointers made with 72. Odegua Oigbokie is also averaging double figures with 10.0 points. In addition, sophomore guard Taylor Edwards, who made her first career start at point guard last weekend, has provided ODU with a spark offensively and is averaging 12 points and nine rebounds in the last 11 games.

ODU has never lost to FAU and leads the all-time series, 4-0. The Monarchs have won all four previous matchups by 20 or more points.

Florida Atlantic (10-11, 4-6 C-USA) sit a half game ahead of the Monarchs in the league standings, but enter Wednesday on a four-game losing streak. The Owls' four C-USA wins have come over Marshall, LA Tech, UTEP and UTSA. Sasha Cedeno leads the team with 17.5 points and 8.1 rebounds.
