HALF-TIME FREE THROW COMPETITION BETWEEN BOWDLER AND MANN TO HIGHLIGHT "BASKETS FOR BOOKS" GAME SATURDAY

The Old Dominion University Monarchs (6-2) will host the Blue Demons of DePaul (5-3) Saturday at 4 p.m. in the Ted Constant Convocation Center for the 15th Annual "Baskets for Books" game, co-sponsored by Old Dominion's Athletic Department and the Friends of the Library.

A percentage of the proceeds from game ticket sales will be donated to the university's Perry Library for the purchase of new books and equipment. At halftime former Monarchs Billy Mann ('83) and Cal Bowdler ('99) will shoot free throws with the proceeds going to "Friends of the ODU Library."

Junior Arnaud Dahi and senior Alex Loughton, who lead the team in scoring and rebounds respectively, will need strong performances to lead the Monarchs over a tough Blue Demon team that is coming off a recent upset victory over #16 Wake Forest. The two teams have met seven times previously, with DePaul leading the series at 5-2. Last year's match-up resulted in a 73-60 victory in favor of DePaul in Chicago.
