This also marks the 15th time under Consuegra’s lead that at least five players have been in double figures in points. It is the third time that the bench has failed to score.

The Lady Monarchs have also not seen action since last Saturday, and are also coming off of a win, defeating LA Tech 69-64. The Lady Techsters are the only conference team to deal the 49ers a loss so far this season.
After six conference games, ODU is second in the league shooting a 45.5 field goal percentage. They also rank third in the league from behind the arc, shooting 36.7 percent.
Two girls to look for on the ODU roster are Jennie Simms and Destinee Young.
