It's put up or shut up time for Old Dominion (7-4, 1-1 Colonial). The preseason league favorites have swung wildly from pole to pole, showing signs of their predicted level of play in amongst blowouts at the hands of Drexel
, doing serious damage to any CAA two-bid scenario in the process. Their primary problems: shooting (42.3%, 222nd nationally) and an underachieving Alex Loughton
(13.1 ppg).This, tonight, a home game against a mid-level ACC team, is the kind of game a mid-major champion wins. Quick book on the Hokies: they don't cough up the ball (9th in D1 with a 16.6% turnover rate), they got beat by that last-second shot
at Cameron Indoor, and they've loaded up on patsies (avg. RPI of victims: 254). So come on, Monarchs, you've got to take care of business here - if the final spread is in line to our average G!O!T!N! victory margin this week (28), we're going to move on.
