The Monarchs broke open a close two-point game at the half with a dominant offensive performance in the second half. The Monarchs scored 47 points in the second half on 48 percent shooting.
Defensively, ODU held William & Mary (5-4) to 38 percent from the field and 13 percent from beyond the arc. The Monarchs also outscored the Tribe, 38-22, in the paint.
"We found a way to get in the paint and stay aggressive to put ourselves in a position to win. Part of it was the free-throw line. I was really pleased with that and it was a great way to bounce back." - Coach McCray
ODU was 29-of-42 from the charity stripe, which was one shy of the team's season high for free throws made.
The win was ODU's first over William & Mary since 2014-15.
