NORFOLK, Va. -- Senior T.J. Jordan (Portsmouth, Va.) was down right scary Halloween night at the Ted Constant Convocation as she shot 7-of-8 from downtown and led six Lady Monarch double figure scorers with 25 points in the Old Dominion women's basketball team's 101-60 victory over Shaw University in exhibition action.
Jordan, who holds nearly every three-point record at Old Dominion, also added game-high five assists, five rebounds, and two steals. Twenty of Jordan's points came in the first half of action including a string of four straight.
Senior Shahida Williams (Newark, Del.) was another among the double figure scorers. "Greedy" came off the bench for 12 points, including an 8-of-10 performance from the line.
Junior Tiffany Green (Chesapeake, Va.), freshmen Jasmine Parker (Norfolk, Va.) and Shadasia Green (Patterson, N.J.), and sophomore Jessica Canady (Williasmburg, Va.) each poured in 11 points in the 41-point win. All of Shadasia Green's points came in the second half.
Canady nearly missed a double-double as she hauled in a game-high nine boards. Tiffany Green also grabbed eight as the Lady Monarchs outrebounded the Bears, 49-33.
Old Dominion held a 49-31 edge in the first half and proceeded to outscore Shaw, 52-29 in the second half. The Lady Monarchs build up as much as a 50 point lead with just over five minutes remaining in the game.
The Old Dominion women's basketball team returns to action Tuesday, November 6th against Athletes-In-Action. Game time is slated for 7:00 p.m.
