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.

RE: ODU WBB vs CNU [exhibition]
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

Guess I wasnt paying close enough attention. Felt like Doug Ripley was still referring to them as the LM just this week.

Edit: The Pilot is where I keep seeing it, so I just assumed nothing had changed yet.

It seems like they're trying to be half-pregnant with regards to a name change. If they're going to do it, then issue a press release and hold a news conference to make it official. Get everyone on the same page. Otherwise, you're going to get what you're seeing now, which is ODU quietly shifting to Monarchs in official releases while ESPN and the Pilot still using Lady Monarchs because they've not been told anything different on the record.

That CNU squad could compete in D1 and beat some D1 schools. 29-3 last season and made it to the Final Four.

We had a CNU transfer on the men's football and basketball teams. Don't let the D3 classification fool you.

I think the Monarchs finish with a winning record.

Yep. It's time to retire the Lady Monarchs name. It probably should have gone away when Wendy was removed from power. Need to clue in the cheerleaders too. They were doing their "Lady Monarchs" cheer last night.

On Instagram yesterday the storyline on ODU was "CNU Exhibition tonight at 7". I had to do a double take to make sure it wasn't the men.

I watched the game. CNU is terrible. There is a ton more talent in Men's basketball, so it takes a lot more talent to play D1. By the time you drop down to D2 and then to D3 in Women's basketball, there's not much talent left. That's why you see such a huge drop off in the level of the the top 5 or so Women's teams and the next teams below them. There just aren't the numbers of women with both size and athleticism to fill the rosters.

Saying that, we knew this would be a tough year. Karen left the cupboard pretty bare. It does look like Nikki has done some good recruiting, but it still might take a couple of years to get back on track. The future does look bright, if we can survive this year. I sat through the Men's 5-25 year, I can make it through this.

I remember CNU had a really good women's player a few years ago, Chelsea Schweers from Hickory HS. Best 3-point shooter in D-3 history and one of the best scorers ever at that level. She at least could have gotten some PT at ODU.

Just out of curiosity: why? I personally like the name "Lady Monarchs". Also quickly distinctive telling you that you are talking about women's basketball. Am I out of touch or something? I thought it was a nice name.

It was a touch divisive for one. The hardcore women’s hoops fans despised the men’s program, some rather openly. It also was awful from a branding perspective. All our teams are Monarchs. Monarch men’s and women’s baseketball, soccer, tennis, or golf just looks and sounds better.
