ODU, VCU, W&M get early starts Wednesday

 Wednesday's games:

Norfolk State (5-4) at VCU (6-3), noon
The Rams appear to be rounding into form behind CAA Player of the Week Courtney Hurt, who is averaging 27.7 points and 11.9 rebounds in her last 7 games. Extremely tough matchup for the Spartans. VCU 71, NSU 54

Maryland-Eastern Shore (2-7) at Old Dominion (3-8), 11:30 a.m.
You always worry about players' focus on these pre-holiday matinee games since everyone is prepared to scatter to the four winds at game's end. Fortunately for the Lady Monarchs, they'll have hundreds of local elementary school kids on hand to keep reminding them of the task at hand.  ODU 72, UMES 49

William and Mary (5-4) at Seton Hall (7-5),12:30 p.m.
This will be the fourth game against a CAA foe this season for Anne Donovan-led Seton Hall, as the Pirates have beaten ODU and Drexel and lost to Hofstra. Long Island was apparently able to chase William and Mary off the 3-point line on Monday (the Tribe shot 2 of 9 from long range in the 78-69 loss), and long-range shooting is an important weapon in the Tribe's arsenal. The Pirates are pretty good from deep, too, though - they nailed 11 3-pointers against Drexel on Dec. 12. Seton Hall 67, William and Mary 64

Virginia Tech (3-7) at Florida Gulf Coast (7-1), 7 p.m.
Tough assignment for the Hokies, as the 3-point shooting specialist Eagles virtually never lose at home.  Florida Gulf Coast 78, Virginia Tech 53
