ODU vs. Anne Donovan (sort of) in Virgin Islands

One way or another, Old Dominion and Anne Donovan will get together this year. Some folks want ODU to pursue Donovan as the Lady Monarchs next coach. Assuming that doesn't materialize, the current Seton Hall coach will face her former school as part of the Virgin Islands Paradise Jam Nov. 24-26 in St. Thomas. The Lady Monarchs will also face longtime rival Louisiana Tech (ODU beat LaTech to win the AIAW title in 1979) and Alabama. The schedule:

Nov. 24 (Thanksgiving Day) - Alabama vs. Old Dominion, 1 p.m.
Nov. 25 - Old Dominion vs. Louisiana Tech, 3:15 p.m.
Nov. 26 - Old Dominion vs. Seton Hall, 1 p.m.

The Lady Monarchs faced a murderer's row schedule when they last visited the Virgin Islands in 2007, as they dropped games to No. 2 UConn (86-43) and No. 4 Stanford (69-61) before upending No. 22 Purdue (66-53).
