NORFOLK, Va. -- In the regular-season home finale, the Old Dominion women's basketball team pulled away from Longwood in the second half to defeat the Lancers, 69-48, on Monday evening at the Ted Constant Center.

Dejah Carter led Old Dominion (19-9) with 17 points on 8-of-9 shooting. 

The Monarchs outscored Longwood (3-25) by a margin of 35-17 in the second half, including 22-7 in the fourth quarter. ODU led 34-31 at the half.

"We had some great positives. 50 points in the paint. We shot 51 percent. And we had some really solid individual performances. But, their defense stifled us a little in the first half. We played to their tempo. We're going to focus on the positives, but we also have to prep for this kind of defense." - Coach McCray

Amari Young recorded her second double-double with 11 points and 12 rebounds. Mariah Adams and Aziah Hudson also finished in double figures with 10 points apiece. 

ODU ends the regular season with an 11-3 home record, its best home winning percentage since 2010-11. 

The Monarchs also went 10-3 in non-conference, marking the first time since 1996-97 that ODU won 10 non-conference games during the regular season. The 96-97 team went to the NCAA Championship game.

Up next, the Monarchs head to Conference USA foe Florida Atlantic for the final game of the regular season on Thursday.
