Old Dominion University's men's and women's basketball games were recently selected as the "Best Family Entertainment in Norfolk" in The Best of
Norfolk 2007 readers poll, conducted annually by the advertising department of The Virginian-Pilot.

The Monarchs and Lady Monarchs completed their fifth season in the Ted Constant Convocation Center. Old Dominion was selected first in the family
entertainment category, followed by the Norfolk Admirals hockey team and the Norfolk Tides, the AAA baseball affiliate team of the Baltimore
Orioles. The Monarchs led the Colonial Athletic Association in attendance for the third straight year, averaging more than 6,600 fans per game, while
the Lady Monarchs have led the CAA in attendance for 16 straight years and are ranked 32nd in the nation, averaging more than 3,500 fans per game.

Top vote-getters receive a banner declaring them "Best in Norfolk," which they can display for a year. The Ted Constant Convocation Center is managed
by Global Spectrum, a subsidiary of Comcast-Spectacor.
