BOSTON, Mass. -- Sophomore Jasmine Parker (Norfolk, Va.) netted a team-high 17 points and senior Tiffany Green (Chesapeake, Va.) poured in a double-double with 12 points and 11 boards in the Old Dominion women's basketball team's 66-56 victory at Northeastern on a snowy Sunday afternoon.
The Lady Monarchs, who won their third straight, improved to 8-5 overall and 3-0 in the CAA. Northeastern, meanwhile, fell to 4-10 overall and 1-2 in league action.
Old Dominion led by just two, 25-23, at the half before Green exploded for all 12 of her points in half number two.
Leading by four, 31-35, with 14:11 left in the game, Old Dominion proceeded to take a 9-3 run sparked by a Parker three for its first double digit lead of the afternoon. Northeastern would pull no closer than seven the rest of the way.
Green, who was limited to only two looks at the basket in the first half,shot 6-of-8 from the field in the second half.
Also joining Parker and Green in double figures was senior Jazzmin Walters (Norfolk, Va.) with 15. Walters also added in six assists and three steals.
Northeastern had two in double figures led by Kim Carr with 18. Kendra Walton, who connected on 3-of-4 from three-point range, added in 17 all coming in the second half.
