Old Dominion Cruises Past Georgia State
Old Dominion Cruises Past Georgia State For Eighth Straight Win
Sophomore Trian Iliadis hit
three triples in the first half
NORFOLK, Va. - Senior Gerald Lee led three Monarchs in double-figures with 16 points and sophomore Kent Bazemore swiped a career-high six steals as Old Dominion breezed past Colonial Athletic Association foe Georgia State Thursday evening, 56-40.
Old Dominion (17-5, 9-1 CAA) has now won 19 straight home games, which is the sixth longest home winning streak in the country. The Monarchs have also won eight consecutive contests overall.
Joining Lee in double-figures were junior Ben Finney, who tallied 12 points and a game-high nine rebounds, and classmate Frank Hassell, who posted 10 points and seven rebounds.
ODU's defense, which entered the game third nationally in points allowed per game (55.5), held its ninth opponent to under 50 points and third to 40 or less. The 40 points scored by the Panthers is their lowest total since a 46-38 loss to Utah on Nov. 17, 2003.
Georgia State (9-13, 3-7) shot 35.4 percent for the game, the sixth consecutive opponent to shoot 36 percent or lower against ODU. The Monarchs also dominated the boards, out-rebounding GSU, 40-23.
