Lady Monarchs could be dark horse in conference tournament

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – Junior guard Shae Kelley believes her team is playing its “best basketball right now.” And why shouldn’t she feel that way?

The Lady Monarchs (16-14, 9-7) are heading to the Conference USA tournament having won five straight games. Not to mention, three of those five wins were away from the home confines of the Ted Constant Center, and all five W’s were by a double-digits.

“We know that we should’ve beat a lot of the teams that we lost to,” said Kelley, who leads the team with 18.1 points per night.

ODU will put their win streak to the test in their first Conference USA tournament test on Wednesday. Tip off is set for 7:30 pm Eastern Time.
