ODU to visit Florida; Hampton to host Gators

Old Dominion will play its return game against Florida on Nov. 30 (Tuesday) in Gainesville. Last season, the Gators traveled to Norfolk and spanked the Lady Monarchs 81-67. The matchup will re-unite ODU's Mairi Buchan and Rebecca Allison with Florida's Azania Stewart. All have represented Great Britain in international play.

A couple of weeks later, the Gators will visit Hampton on Dec. 10. It's a terrific "get" for the Pirates; rarely do MEAC schools get to host a program from a power conference like the SEC.

The Gators went 15-17 last year and reached the second round of the WNIT. The team graduated five seniors, and three other players announced plans to transfer shortly after the season. So Florida will need to tap heavily into a six-player recruiting class ranked No. 21 nationally by one service.
