NORFOLK, Va. – The Old Dominion men’s basketball team will host Christopher Newport for its one and only exhibition game on Wednesday, Oct. 30 at 7:00 p.m. ET at Chartway Arena.
The Monarchs enter the season following an 26-9 campaign last year that included a first-place finish in Conference USA at 13-5 and a Conference USA Tournament championship, lifting ODU to its first NCAA Tournament since 2011. Last year's appearance in the Big Dance was ODU's 12th appearance in the NCAA Tournament.
Head coach Jeff Jones was named the 2019 Conference USA Coach of the Year and will enter the 2019-20 season with 497 career wins, just three victories shy of reaching the 500 milestone.
