WILLIAMSBURG, Va. -- Nick Wright scored 14 points and 10 of Old Dominion's 11 players scored in a 70-51 rout of William & Mary on Wednesday night.
It was the eighth straight win over William & Mary for the Monarchs, who shot 62.5 percent in the first half (15 of 24) to lead 41-22 at the break.
Leading 8-7, Old Dominion took over early scoring 10 straight points on a 3-pointer and three consecutive layups. The last turned into a three-point play on Wright's free throw with 15:32 left until halftime.
The Tribe, which would trail by as many as 32 twice, got no closer than seven the rest of the way.
William & Mary (4-22, 2-12), which didn't have a double-figure scorer, shot just 28.8 percent from the field (15 of 25).
Maryland point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.
Louisville's Chinanu Onuaku, who recently underwent a medical procedure to correct a heart rhythm issue detected during the combine, will keep his name in the NBA draft pool.
Andrew White III will return to the Nebraska men's basketball team next season after removing his name from the NBA draft.
