RICHMOND, VA—ODU sophomore guards Aaron Bacote and Keenan Palmore each scored 13 points, but VCU (8-2) rallied to outscore the Monarchs 28-6 down the stretch in the second half for a 69-48 non-conference win in the Siegel Center Sunday afternoon. ODU falls to 4-5 on the season.

The Monarchs trailed 34-31 at half, but a three-point basket by Aaron Bacote with 12:53 left in the game put the Monarchs up, 41-40. VCU’s JeQuann Lewis came back to hit a jumper to give the Rams the lead for good at 42-41 with 12:22 remaining. Juvonte Reddic then scored for a 44-41 lead as VCU rolled off 13 straight points for a 53-41 lead before the Monarchs would score on two Aaron Bacote free throws with 6:38 left.

In the first half, ODU led by as much as eight, 16-8 with 13:35 remaining after a Bacote layup. The Monarchs shot .469 (15-32) from the field thanks to eight points from Palmore and six points each from red-shirt juniors Richard Ross and Dimitri Batten, and freshman forward Denzell Taylor. ODU only trailed the Rams 21-19 in rebounding at the break.

The Monarchs finished the game shooting .375 (21-56) from the field and VCU shot .375 (27-32), but the Rams outrebounded ODU, 50-35, scoring 30 second chance points. The Monarchs also committed 21 turnovers to VCU’s 14.

Besides Bacote and Palmore’s 13 point efforts, red-shirt junior forward Richard Ross scored eight points with nine rebounds and blocked four shots. Palmore and Taylor each had two steals, while Palmore led ODU with three assists.
