Despite inclement weather conditions that could drop up to a foot of snow on the Hampton Roads area, the Old Dominion Lady Monarchs will hit the court today in a home contest against Western Kentucky.
Tip-off is 4 p.m. at the Ted Convocation Center. However, ODU officials are strongly encouraging fans to remain at home. Today’s game will be broadcasted live on Star 1310am in addition to a live video stream by ESPN3.
“Based on the predicted winter weather conditions for tonight and Saturday, and for the safety of our fans, we are asking fans who would normally travel to our campus to stay home and listen to the game on the radio,” ODU’s Director of Athletics, Dr. Wood Selig said of the school’s decision.
ODU will also allow fans to redeem tickets to today’s game for free admission to any of the Lady Monarchs’ home contest for the remainder of the 2016-17 regular season. Fans can exchange their tickets at the Ted Constant Center ticket office.
