CAA Tournament 2011: ODU Defeats Hofstra To Move Onto Finals

We have our CAA championship match set. The ODU Monarchs defeated the Hofstra Pride 77-69 to advance to the conference tournament finals against VCU.

The leading scorer for ODU was Frank Hassell, who notched 22 points for the Monarchs. Darius James and Kent Bazemore were also in double digit figures. 

With this victory, ODU has now won eight games in a row and will have a chance to win their second consecutive CAA championship. What's interesting is that they will be playing a VCU team that upset George Mason, and the result of that game could have big implications for the CAA this year as it relates to the NCAA tournament. ODU has had a relatively strong season as a mid major, and if they lose to VCU, we could have as many as three teams from the CAA in the NCAA tournament. 

It all makes for a very intriguing matchup between VCU and ODU, which will take place tomorrow.
