Daily dribble

Tonight's lineup

Old Dominion (0-1) at Maryland (2-0), 7 p.m.
- After her near-double-double against the mammoth Stanford front line (16 and 9), ODU center Tia Lewis faces another tough matchup in beefy 6-4 sophomore Lynetta Kizer (17 ppg, 8 rpg). Of the Lady Monarchs, only Lewis (2nd half), Shadasia Green and Jasmine Parker really stood up to Stanford. Add a healthy Jessica Canady and you've got the nucleus of a dangerous team. But with Canady still nursing her surgically repaired knee, the Lady Monarchs are going to need some big-time efforts from some unlikely sources to keep the Terps from pulling away. Maryland 88, ODU 75

George Mason (1-1) at Virginia Tech (1-1), 7 p.m.
- Matchup features two of our favorite newcomers: Tech guard Alyssa Fenyn and Mason guard and Boo Williams AAU alumnus Rahneeka Saunders. Fenyn has exceeded expectations so far (14 ppg, 6 rpg through 2 games); while Saunders is still getting the hang of things. Virginia Tech 68, George Mason 59

William and Mary (1-0) at Hampton (0-0), 7 p.m.
- We loved what we saw from the Tribe in their season opener Sunday. As for Hampton, we'll bet even David Six isn't sure what to expect from his Lady Pirates - or the Lady Pirates from Six -when they all make their 2009-10 debut tonight. A year ago, the Lady Pirates defeated the Tribe by 13 in Williamsburg. But the feeling here is tonight a deeper, more cohesive William and Mary bunch gets its revenge. William and Mary 75, Hampton 61.
