WOMEN AND MEN'S BASKETBALL 2000-2001 SCHEDULES RELEASED
The Old Dominion University women's basketball schedule for the 2000-01 season will feature games against all of last year's NCAA "Final Four" teams, including home dates with national runner-up Tennessee, and Final Four competitor Rutgers along with UCLA and Virginia Tech. The men's basketball schedule will have first-time home dates with North Carolina State and Kansas State and a first-ever meeting against Stanford of the Pac-10.
Last year, the Lady Monarchs compiled a 29-5 record, advanced to the NCAA "sweet 16" for the fifth straight year and captured an NCAA record ninth straight CAA Championship. Old Dominion was ranked 14th in the final Associated Press poll and 12th in the final USA Today/ESPN poll.
"The Lady Monarchs schedule will provide great competition and exciting challenges for the Old Dominion University women's basketball team and its many fans and supporters," said Jim Jarrett, Old Dominion athletic director. "The non-conference strength of schedule may be the strongest in the NCAA and includes all of last year's Final Four teams. The schedule exemplifies the University goals and aspirations for women's basketball and I am personally excited about the coming season as well as the future of the program.
"The men's schedule will provide quality games and significant challenges during the season," said Jarrett. "The home schedule includes some exciting match ups for the fans and supporters of the Monarchs. With games against N.C. State, Kansas State, the CAA games, the Norfolk State rivalry, opening the San Juan Shootout with Stanford, and games at Dayton, St. Joseph's, George Washington culminating with the CAA Tournament in March gives us a lot to be excited about for the coming season. Construction has started on the Constant Center and I look forward to its completion in the year 2002. In the interim, we are pleased to have both Scope and the Fieldhouse available for our games."
