Old Dominion shot 52% from beyond the arc, nailing 12 trifectas. While DePaul could do nothing right. The Blue Demons were held to 24% shooting from the field and 14% from three point range, their worst this season.
Isaiah Hunter and Arnaud Dahi led the way for ODU with 18 points each. Hunter's points included five three pointers.
For DePaul it was the worst loss in the school's history. No Blue Demon reached double figures. Draelon Burns finished with eight points. Karron Clarke and Marcus Heard added seven each.
DePaul never led in this game as ODU jumped out to an early 6-0 lead. DePaul did try to fight back to come within three at one point, but trailed 29-22 at halftime. The second half was all Old Dominion.
Blue Demons sophomore center Wesley Green sat out the game with a foot injury. Green had a career high 13 points in his last outing on Tuesday at Wake Forest. Green is expected to go in for tests on his foot in Chicago on Monday.
After the game, DePaul coach Jerry Wainwright told WSCR Radio, "We faced a team that had a long time to prepare, they had their legs," said Wainwright. "Once they got it going, we had nothing left in the tank. Old Dominion played great."
DePaul was in the middle of a four game road trip and head to Oakland to take on California on Wednesday. Is the road beginning to wear on them? "We're really a tired team right now, we somehow have to regroup before we head to the West Coast," Wainwright said.
