CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Fresh off a 94-89 overtime victory at No. 9/10 Ohio State, the University of Miami women’s basketball team returns home to take on Old Dominion Sunday at 2 p.m.

For No. 18/16 Miami (6-1), the contest will begin a stretch of six consecutive games in Miami-Dade County, five of which will be at the Watsco Center.

The Hurricanes are 3-1 all-time against Old Dominion, notching their lone win in impressive fashion last year, with a 61-35 road triumph on Nov. 17, 2015.

Miami’s win at Ohio State Thursday night in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge was its sixth straight and the program’s first top-10 road victory since an 83-80 victory at sixth-ranked North Carolina on Feb. 2, 2014.

Redshirt senior forward Keyona Hayes logged a career-high 23 points to lead the Hurricanes, while senior guard Jessica Thomas had 16 and sophomore forward/center Erykah Davenport recorded her first-career double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.

Old Dominion enters Sunday’s contest at 3-2 on the season and has won its last two games, both at home. The Lady Monarchs are led by redshirt senior guard Jennie Simms, a Preseason All-Conference USA selection, who is leading the league in scoring at 26.4 points per game, good for second in the country.

Coming off a 17-17 (10-8 C-USA) campaign in 2015-16, Old Dominion was picked to finish third in its conference this season.

Miami’s game against the Lady Monarchs will be broadcast live on ACC Network Extra HERE, as well as carried live on WVUM 90.5 FM HERE. Live stats for the game can be found HERE.

Team posters and schedule cards will be available at the marketing table by the main entrance.

Miami will play its second consecutive home game Tuesday at 11 a.m., when it meets Loyola Chicago at the Watsco Center.
