ODU WBB vs CNU [exhibition]
Anyone else here? Monarchs are up 21-10 so far with 1:18 left in the quarter. We're dominating down low but seem to lose focus on defense.

RE: ODU WBB vs CNU [exhibition]
I was there. Band sounded good. This year is going to bad. Really bad. This team lacks depth and talent. After getting up by 16 points, ODU let CNU come back and take the lead and almost lost to a Div. 3 school (63-56) and not even a good one. CNU can't shoot a lick or they would have won. Another 20 turn over performance against a much inferior opponent. Lots of instances of total loss of focus resulting in turn overs or scoring by CNU. A team with real Div. 1 talent is going to shred them. CNU led in rebounding until late in the 4th quarter and ODU went into the 4th quarter with 4 (FOUR!) offensive rebounds and ZERO second chance points. Two players with 4 fouls in the 4th quarter. Foul trouble will be huge this year. Ashley Jackson appears to be injured and did not play, leaving only 9 players, of which only 8 played. Went something like 8-15 from the free throw line. Kelly Loftus and Victoria Morris did shoot the 3 really well(53%), but they were all wide open looks.

It's the first year of a major rebuild job. I certainly hope nobody is expecting much this season.

Mccray is going to have her work cut out for her.

When Wendy Larry was coach her bad yer was 5 and 21 before winning 17 car championships in a row.

Do you think we could do better than 5 wins

Maybe, maybe not, but I remain excited for future years, mainly for the type of talent coming in next year and the strong belief that Nikki has the wherewithal to deliver. Her third season here will definitely give us a better perspective.

Yes, I think this will be a tough year. Yes, depth will be an issue. But my hope is that the future will be bright. Coach McCray coached and taught throughout the game, a refreshing change from the rah-rah, over-hyped excitement on the sideline the past few years. Turnovers were a problem, but this was the first game a lot of these girls played together. The next game will be telling. Liberty has been pretty good in recent years and usually have what ODU lacks this year — length and depth. Those are assets Coach McCray can’t teach.

Did the ODU WBB team drop "Lady Monarchs"? I feel like I heard that somewhere and that NMP (Nikki McCray-Penson) wanted to make that change. Anyone else heard that?

Someone mentioned it on this board. As of now, nothing has changed. And if it does happen, it won't be until next year since it will require new uniforms.

Lady Swish (ex-Pilot Vicki Friedman) reported it on her blog site. Lots of schools dropping "Lady"

It doesn't say Lady Monarchs on the jerseys. And you wont see any recent mention of Lady Monarchs on Twitter or FB
