Best 5 games can have multiple meanings: Most surprising; most dramatic comeback; the ones that generated most national attention, etc. Also, I would think that you'd have to include the games in which ODU won a national championship: Men's basketball D-2 in 1975; the three women's basketball national championships; and the several women's field hockey national championships.

1. Vcu in OT in the caa championship game
2. Villanova in the ncaa tourney
3. Notre Dame in the ncaa tourney
4. Va tech in football
5. Beating vcu again in the caa tourney

Hard to describe to anyone who wasn’t there what the atmosphere was like in a sold out big brown dump when Odu and vcu played with the season potentially on the line and the electricity turned up to 11. Yes, it did indeed go to 11.

Don't remember the date and I am not a soccer fan. We scored the tying goal vs. VCU with less than 10 seconds to go and got the winner very early in OT. To see those VCU players lying frustrated and disappointed on the field made sitting through a soccer game memorable..

I don't disagree, it clearly meets my first three criteria (surprising, comeback, national attention).

Some good ones here, I'll add when ODU Women BB played the the #1 Russian National Team and their 7-2 center in a sold out game at Scope. The sellout crowd of 10,237 was the largest gathering ever to watch a single women's game. Was a tough ticket.

Funny how time changes memory
Alex Loughton had 45 points, in a 2OT lost to 105-102 to Charlotte.

Ah that's right. Good catch... I remembered it as a win this morning, before coffee. Fixed it.

It's a little tough to trim it to five right now, but this is my personal #1.

I'm still not sure I've ever heard the Ted louder than that game, especially when Walters drained the 3 for the win.

I was at the win over New Orleans. I don't care what division it is, winning a national championship is amazing. I'll never forget that game and the celebration afterwards.
