Lidonde Makes His Decision

Abdi Lidonde was one of the best available shooters on the board up until Monday. Now, he's gone and joined the ranks of committed players.

ODU Lands Lidonde

We've been big fans of Abdi Lidonde all season long. Apparently, Old Dominion liked him too. Earlier this week, Lidonde made Old Dominion his collegiate destination.

Lidonde's high school coach Mike Hart said Manhattan and George Mason were also under strong consideration. But, last week's visit to the Hampton area did the trick. "He enjoyed the visit and he enjoyed the area. He really liked the coaching staff and the guys. It's got everything he's looking for. It's an academic school with a chance to play and the guys really get along."

ODU turned up the heat on Lidonde during The Slam Dunk To The Beach. His addition gives Old Dominion a superior recruiting class in the Colonial Athletic Association. Arnaud Dahi, Valdas Vasylius and Brian Henderson were the three prior commitments.
