Old Dominion freshman Aaron Bacote’s status for Saturday’s game against Delaware is questionable, athletic department officials said Friday.
Bacote, a 6-foot-5 wing from Bethel High, was inadvertently elbowed in the side of the head early in the second half of Wednesday’s loss to James Madison. He went to the bench and did not return.
Bacote is the Monarchs’ fourth-leading scorer, at 7.6 points per game, and has played in all 14 games, with eight starts. He is ODU’s most consistent 3-point shooter, hitting 36.1 percent from behind the arc (18-for-50). He is shooting 40.2 percent from the field and is third in assists.
ODU (2-12, 0-2 CAA) aims to avoid its first 0-3 start in conference play since 1999-2000. Delaware (5-8) was picked to finish second in the league as the Blue Hens open conference play. Tipoff is noon at the Constant Center.
