NORFOLK -- Aaron Bacote takes the long view, which is both understandable and wise as Old Dominion winds down a historically dismal basketball season.
"I feel like I'm a glass half-full kind of guy," the Monarchs' freshman wing from Bethel High said recently. "I have three more years of basketball and a lot to look forward to. The challenge is to get this program back to where it was, to the top of the conference and make some noise nationally."
"I think this year has been really valuable. Experience is the best teacher. You've got to learn how to fight through things. The fact that we've gone through this at such a young age, I think will help us in the future."
