NORFOLK, Va. - The Old Dominion women's basketball team is set to host the 2019 Tip-Off Dinner at the Renaissance Portsmouth on Wednesday, Oct. 9 from 6-9 pm. Longtime ODU coach Wendy Larry and ODU alumni and Hall of Famer Ticha Penicheiro will be special guests. A cocktail reception will begin at 6:00 p.m., while dinner and presentations will start at 7:00PM.

In the 2018-19 season, Old Dominion posted one of the biggest turnarounds not only in program history, but in the nation, in McCray's second season. The Monarchs went 21-11, marking a 13-win improvement from the previous season. The 13+ win mark was the sixth-highest in the NCAA in 2018-19 and the second-best in program history. With the 21 wins, ODU earned an at-large bid to the WNIT, the program's seventh appearance in the WNIT and first postseason appearance since 2015.
