Hoops notes: ODU - We're No. 2!

A few quick hits:

   - Old Dominion holds steady at No. 2 in this week's collegeinsider.com mid-major Top 25 poll, one spot behind Green Bay. Other teams of interest: Delaware is No. 10, James Madison is No. 13, VCU is No. 21 and Drexel is No. 24. Liberty and Hampton fall in the "others receiving votes" category. Incidentally, ODU is No. 1 in the website's men's poll.  And in case you missed it, the Lady Monarchs check in at No. 6 in our own Silent Majority rankings.

   - ODU's Jasmine Parker earned CAA Co-Player of the Week honors along with Hofstra's Shante Evans. The Lady Monarchs senior guard averaged 23.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4.5 steals in two games last week.

   - William and Mary's Kaitlyn Mathieu is the CAA Rookie of the Week. Mathieu averaged 19 points on 60-percent shooting, 5.5 rebounds and 2.5 blocks during the Cancun Thanksgiving Classic and was the only freshman on the all-tournament team.

   - Norfolk State's Rae Corbo was named the MEAC Rookie of the Week. A 5-foot-6 guard out of Englewood, N.J., Corbo tallied 13 points in NSU’s 66-51 win over Wofford Saturday afternoon in the Spartans’ home opener at Joseph Echols Hall.

   - Radford's Da'Naria Erwin Spencer is the Big South Player of the Week. Erwin Spencer averaged 17.5 points, 4.0 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 3.0 steals as Radford went 1-1 last week. The sophomore guard was the leading scorer in both contests, including a 63-56 comeback victory at George Mason on Nov. 26.
