School the Court: The phrase was more than a mantra - it was a mission.

On this mission, the Lady Monarchs achieved 100% success.

It was a record day on many fronts including the largest crowd to watch an ODU women's game - 8,086 fans, thanks in part to the third annual Education day. Thirty-two Norfolk public schools participated which equated to more than 6,200 students.

Coach Karen Barefoot had a special message for the kids after the game. "Education is first, anything can happen. I told my team we can make a difference and we wanted to see every kid leave here with a smile."

Everyone left with a huge smile as the ladies took care of business by defeating the Riverhawks of UMass-Lowell 90 to 57.

Former Princess Anne Cavalier Galaisha Goodhoope had 10 points while junior forward Shea Kelley led the team with 26.
