The Dragons shot 10 for 30 from the field but led, 27-17 at halftime.

One reason for the lead was that ODU, which beat Delaware, 88-74 on Saturday, was 7 for 26 from the field and 2 for 9 from beyond the arc.

For the second straight game, Chris Fouch led the Dragons at the half. Fouch, who had 12 points at halftime of Saturday’s 57-49 win over UNCW, had nine of his 16 points in the first half.
