    Virginia Tech needs to move quickly in replacing Greenberg
    Virginia Tech's most recent basketball coaching search lasted more than three weeks. The program can't afford a similar delay this time. Not to suggest athletic director Jim Weaver repeat his two-day quest of 1999. That appeared impulsive, and the...
  • CAA snapshot: Losses, injuries and a dose of perspective

    As we begin to anticipate the buzz at the Richmond Coliseum for a Northeastern-Delaware championship game the night of March 11, it’s worth checking in with Tom Yeager’s basketball collective as conference play ramps up. Yes, the standings...
  • CAA looks inward after rough non-conference performance

    Corrigan takes reins of ODU basketball after Taylor's firing

  • Post-Blaine, ODU energetic, if not always efficient

    Despite the turmoil of the past week, Old Dominion appears to play a little more loosely and confidently than in its first 22 games. This is part observation, part statistical. The Monarchs are a bit more freewheeling and aggressive on offense, cohesive...

    ODU repeats as CAA champs, beats VCU in final 70-65
    In the post-game melee, a life-size cutout of Frank Hassell loomed over the Old Dominion fans celebrating on the court at the Richmond Coliseum. The home-made likeness was attention-grabbing, but the real deal was even bigger. Hassell had 22 points as...
