ODU’s streak snapped

Associated Press

Old Dominion’s 122-game home winning streak in Colonial Athletic Association play ended Sunday with a 73-70 loss to Delaware in Norfolk, Va., which was led by Tyresa Smith’s 22 points.

The Blue Hens (10-2, 3-0) established themselves as a contender to end the Lady Monarch’s NCAA-record string of 13 consecutive conference championships. Old Dominion has won the league title every season since it joined the CAA in 1991-92.

The loss was the first at home in conference play for the Lady Monarchs since Richmond won 74-70 at the ODU Fieldhouse on Feb. 19, 1992. The streak included 23 games in the league postseason tournament, held at Old Dominion eight times in that span.

The Lady Monarchs (5-6, 1-1) trailed 43-36 early in the second half, then used an 11-0 run to take a 47-43 lead with 14:11 left.

The teams traded the lead several times over the next few minutes before the Blue Hens used a 14-0 run to lead 67-57 with 5:17 to play.

Noelle Quinn scored 18 points as No. 22 UCLA defeated Washington 74-63 in Seattle.

The Bruins led by as much as 13 in the second half, but Washington (6-10, 2-4 Pac-10) pulled to within three points at 63-60 with four minutes to play when Emily Florence hit a 3-pointer. UCLA countered with consecutive scores to ensure the win.

The Bruins (11-3, 5-0 Pac-10) extended their winning streak to five games with their third straight victory over the Huskies.
