WILMINGTON, North Carolina - Senior forward Kent Bazemore scored 17 points and Old Dominion held UNCW to a season-low 30.2 percent shooting as the Monarchs defeated the Seahawks, 53-48, in Colonial Athletic Association men's basketball action Wednesday night at Trask Coliseum.
In addition to Bazemore, senior forward Chris Cooper recorded his 12th double-double, tallying 12 points and grabbing 11 boards. Cooper also swatted a game-high three blocks.
UNCW's 17 points was the lowest scoring output in a half this season, with the previous low coming in a 74-49 loss to Dayton on Nov. 19. The Monarchs' total of 18 was the squad's second-lowest of the campaign, nearly matching the 15 markers ODU notched in a 55-43 win over Howard on Nov. 16.
